a man's son

a man sits
wondering
waiting
the room filled with screams
coughs
moans
the desperate
the man holds his head in his hands
he breathes steadily
calmly
trying to keep himself in control
the doctors pass and look at him
he hears his name called
he stands up
and goes in
there his wife lays and smiles
her hair wet
she's tired
in her arms a blue blanket
and the sound of a small cry
the man tears up
kisses her cheek
then looks upon his son
the first time they meet.
