“BUBBLE THRU THE WATER”

 

I know you’re going to bitch at me

Before we even start,

But I have to take your temperature

And listen to your heart.

I have to draw some blood from you, so kindly turn around.

Leave your clothes on top the stool, please,

‘Til you’re measured, weighed and gowned.

Don’t pin me with your nasty glare

Or make some snide remark.

If you don’t cooperate with me,

I’ll keep you here ‘til dark!

I know that you’ve been hurting,

And it’s like a sad refrain.

I know how much you hate the limp,

And walking with the cane.

I wish I had the power

To give you what you’ve lost.

I’d take us back to yesterday

And never count the cost.

But this is now, and you are here.

There’s nothing to explain.

Your life’s become a soap opera

And a constant fight with pain.

We have to keep your health in check,

Adjust your medication.

It falls to me to see that you

Accept your situation.

My friend, you rip my heart out

Just by being who you are,

With every strained expression

And every battle scar.

Allow me leeway if you can,

Let your stubborn soul arise

Like a bubble through the water

Until your spirit flies.

Just let me do my job for you,

I  can’t stop to soothe your brow.

So bite the bullet, as they say

All we have is now!
