I want to switch off
I want it to stop
Every thought, feeling and emotion until I am a void.
I want to sleep
I want to go blank
No dreams or speech, no tears or recriminations.
I don’t want to see
Can’t bear to witness
Someone I love feeling pain and suffering.
I don’t want to hear
Cover my ears
To quite sobs of worry and apprehension.
I don’t want to leave
Must be brave 
I am the backbone, the strength they rely on.
I want to hold her
reassure her
It’s going to be okay, Mummy’s with you.  

 This piece was written in response to the phrase “Take a leap of faith”, unfortunately my baby girl is having an operation tomorrow, nothing major but still a general anesthetic, I can’t think of much else at the moment.  The leap of faith is my trusting the doctors to get it right when I hand her over to them, because she trusts me implicitly when I say that sadly we must do this. My heart is in my throat tonight, fingers crossed, touch wood, God willing, I can write something more cheerful soon.
