Day #10, 2020 ~ Love, February

It’s 3 am
The corridor is dark, voices muffled, forms huddled
It’s 3 am
The orders keep coming
The work is never ending
It’s 3 am
I sit at the computer
Clicking box after box,
So many words words words
I have to say about
You
It’s 3 am
I’m in your room, untangling cords
It’s 3 am
I’m watching the monitor,
the lines show your breathing,
show your heart is beating,
show that we are doing something right
It’s 3 am
I’m brushing your teeth
I’m taking your blood
I’m trying to stop your head from leaning
I’m repositioning your body
I’m checking I’m checking if if if if if
It’s 3 am
It’s 3 am
It’s 3 am
And you don’t know
And you can’t know
What it’s like for it to be 3 am

I say your name, again and again,
I want you to know, you are you, you are you, you are you
Even when it’s 3 am, and you can’t know, and you won’t know

Love, February
