A poem.

    1
    Waves
    They crash against the shore
    The steady natural rhythm
    Keeps him grounded as the world flips upside down

    "Come immediately," they said
    "She wants to see you"
    They say the baby's fine
    But she isn't

    Waves
    He's running to the car
    Sand in between his toes
    The waves crash against the smooth shore

    "She's about to go"
    "The baby's being cared for in another room"
    "I'm so, so sorry..."
    "She's not
    going
    to
    make
    it"

    Waves
    On the monitor
    Slowly lowering, shortening, quieting
    Flatlining
    He holds her hand until it goes cold

Thanks you so much, though
