Stretcher 28

"She need to keep her moral up."
He had explained.
How could she keep it up
With her strenght so detained?

Cancer was rapidly taking its toll
Forcing life to cancel her role.
A last stay in the emergency room
Hope slowly replaced with doom

A frail body mingled with tubes and sheets
Digitals monitoring faint beats
Shallow breathing...
Life failing...

Cold fingers of death played along her spine
And at half past nine
She laid in such a state
On old stretcher 28
