And you were so tiny entering the room


In response to Mary’s Tuesday’s Poetry Challenge wit the Room with or without a view theme

Those two nights without you were like a neverending nightmare.
You were alone and I missed you so much.
I cried and called the hospital again and again,
begging at least for a chair beside your bed.
But there was no place.
They “couldn’t help”.
It was so late
and I felt tired, couldn’t manage the pain.
I worried and the sleep decided not to come.

The next day was even worse.
Then I suddenly heard ringing the phone.
They called me, I have to come,
my little one is crying and he can’t be without his mom.
Thank you dear Lord!
I threw few stuff into my bag
and flew to the hospital.

I stood in the white sterile room,
gazing at the open door,
waiting to hear your steps,
whispering you are very close.
Then I saw you entering the room,
your little hand held a big kind nurse’s hand,
your other hand squeezed your favorite toy.
Panting and weeping bitter tears,
you fell into my open arms whispering:

“Please, stay here with me!”

  1. This really is heartbreaking. A two year old is still a baby and needs his parents. I’m hoping things have changed in hospitals and parents aren’t kept away. I would think that their presence would make things much easier for the tiny patient. Thanks for sharing and welcome to dVerse, Majka.

    • Thanks for you kind words Gayle. It is changed to some extent and I am glad we did it well that time. It was my pleasure to share this poem. Have a nice day!

  2. you’ve captured those traumatic moments so well in your words and sketch…heartbreaking indeed to leave such a tiny tot in hospital…

    • Thanks Sumana! You know writing about it was like releasing my emotions again after some years. I started to write and the words jus popped out and laid down on the paper. I felt everything again and needed to hide my tears, my husband doesn’t like to see me sad. ☺

  3. How heart-wrenching that would be. I can’t see the wisdom in that decision and I would have slept on the floor under the bed if they really had no room. I’m so sorry that happened, for your sake and your son’s. You painted a painful picture. So glad they finally relented.

    • Thanks a lot Debi! I was very grateful after I got the call from the hospital.

  4. With a child away
    hundreds of miles
    in a specialist
    hospital room
    for children
    with anomalies
    of darkest nature’s
    ways oF
    challenge
    being human..
    so hard
    to be
    away..
    so hard to leave
    empty armed..:)

    • I know there are worse experiences than this mine and I wish all parents to can stay beside their angles in any situation in their lives.
      Thanks for your poetical comment! Have a beautiful blessed day!
