"What more can we do for her? Do you think she can be saved?" "I don't know, but one things for sure I've never seen someone so brave." "What if we try something different? Maybe new meds, or a shrink?" "No, that won't do any good. Radiation's next, I think." Nobody knows I'm not sleeping. Nobody knows I can hear. Nobody knows that I'm trembling Trying to shake off my fear. The wind joins the song of the piano The rain shields me from the world On a broken path, I'd journeyed fast Grew up, and stopped being a girl. But the music won't drown out the voices Floating up from below I can hear them discussing the options, deciding A fate that nobody knows. I hardly have the strength to press the keys All I can do is sit here and stare. I don't feel brave, I can't be saved But it's a fact that they cannot bear. I'm fighting a silent enemy But whether I'll win, I don't have a clue I'm on my own, I'm all alone Because nobody knows what to do. I turn around when I hear a sound. There they are. What a hopeless sight. I try to stand, but they make me sit down. I'll need all of my strength, tonight. "The results are in. I'm sorry, dear. We've double-checked to make sure We've tried so hard, we've done all we can There simply isn't a cure." I'd known it was coming. But still, it's a shock. I collapse like I'm already dead. I know no more, and when I wake up I'm back in that hospital bed. I was young. I was healthy! I'd done all I should. How can this be so? I know I'm not special, but still, why me? Why doesn't anyone know? "These things just happen. Sometimes there's no reason." But it shouldn't have happened to me I really don't care that life isn't fair. I want to know why this had to be.
