Starched white gown
Alone in the examination room
So alone

Empty eyes
Chilled down to the bone
Impending tears

You feel so lost, so hopeless, so gone… so alone.
You close your eyes, take some deep breaths, and picture the waiting room.

She is sitting there… for you
She is praying… for you
She is hoping… for you
She is wishing… for you
She is right around the corner… to support just you.
Her arms are open, ready to engulf you and surround you with protection.
You are safe in her grasp.

Alone, you are lost

Together, you can find each other

Alone, you are hopeless

Together, nothing is impossible

Alone, you are unsteady

Together, you have someone to lean on

Alone, you have to force your next breath

Together, you inhale hope and trust

Alone, it is you against the world

Together, she proudly stands beside you

Alone, the past haunts you

Together, you dream of the future

Alone, I cannot do it
But together… we can.
