An endless river of tears flows down my family's cheeks as we sit there
waiting for my great aunt hilda to breathe her final breath of life.
The room is silent
All I hear are the drops of morphine dripping into the needle
and the fading heartbeat of the woman lying down, gasping for air
It is truly a sad day in the family
Seconds turned to minutes, minutes turned to hours.
Then all we heard was the steady rythme of the morphine drip
Everyone starts crying...
except me....because im so used to death
I look over to see my father shedding tears
My grandmother hugs me, then him.
Seeing her lifeless body lying there broke my heart
But now she can rest in peace and be reunited with her sisters....
It was truly a sad day in the family...
