The hospital room wasn’t cold,
But it wasn’t especially warm either,
Everyone was there but I wasn’t really told
Where to go, so I just stood by the heater
And waited for something to happen.
Eventually, someone came up to me
And asked if I wanted to talk to her, so then
We went to the other side of the curtain to see.
I thought she looked happy, but everyone
Was quiet and I felt a little nervous; I asked
Her if she thought the room was cold or not, I for one
Was perfectly fine with the heat, so everyone’s black
Jackets seemed unnecessary, she laughed and said
The temperature didn’t bother her in the bed.
