Just Breath - Poem by Matthew Hyatt

I take a breath
And see my wife by my side
Her face stricken with tears
By her newfound list of fears
My sons stand shaken
Looking at me with a newfound glory

I take a breath
and stare at a picture
of two men next to me
I don't know who they are
though I feel like I've seen them before
They might be good friends

I take a breath
And stare at a woman next to me
Asks me if I know who she is
She is foreign but nice
She must be a nurse
I am told my disease has gotten worse
What disease?
