The nurse

Removed your


and catheter tubes

You were able to sit

And eat breakfast while speaking

Coherently. Now the doctors

Can run more diagnostic tests on

You and make sure nothing else is gone wrong.

You don’t realize how much you are needed

You don’t realize how much you are loved.

You don’t realize how special you

Are to everyone in life.

You have so many people

That love you so much

We just want the

best for you

You are

Mother Combs

Come near, sit a spell, and listen to tales of old as I sit and rock by my fire. I'll serve you some cocoa and cookies as I tell you of the time long gone by when your Greats-greats once lived.
