I hurried to the hospital. My footsteps got heavier. I heard her wailing for me, echoing in my heart.
Assuming and accepting the harsh truth I pushed the door.
My body went numb. Heart took a pause from pumping.
I observed her.
Instantly I pressed her hand.
She cried, “Dad.”
The curve dropped--- flat.
Her last word before she entered a new world.
A world where she is free and free.
