A Tragic Loss - Poem by Hannah Davies
Drove around the corner
A woman was stood there with a man before her.
He lay still, down on the ground
The woman crying hysterically was the only sound.
She had knocked him off his motor bike
A horrible accident it looked like.
A call to the emergency services were made
And into the recovery position he was laid.
He opened his eyes
He was a young looking guy.
Then he stopped breathing
The colour from his body was leaving.
His helmet had to be carefully removed
Making sure his neck wasn't moved.
Chest compressions we were told to start
To try and restart his heart.
You never think you will need to use first aid
But there was no time to think, decisions had to be made.
The ambulance did arrive
But unfortunately he did not survive.
He didn't look much older than my brother
I would hate to have to be the one to break the news to his Mother.
I feel so sorry for the woman driver
The memories will always be something that stay with her.
It was such a shame
We didn't even know his name.
I take a little comfort in that he didn't pass away on his own
We may have been strangers but at least he was not alone.
