Summary: Edward's dying thoughts in the hospital all those years ago finally revealed.
I feel a gentle breeze as she passed my bed one more time,
The hands that once raised me and soothed my pain
Now turned ice cold in death as it slipped from my grasp
The wheels on her bed were silent as they glided her smoothly away
To lie with so many others that now lie cold and silent
Rows upon rows of those who have moved on just like her
Did they have a family, someone to mourn them when there're gone?
Did they have a lover, a brother, a sister or even a song
Just something to leave behind as they pass on
Did they have a child or did they watch their family pass on one by one
Are they, like her, still restless for those behind still struggling to escape their bonds
That bind them to their bed, when they once were strong
Will they be forever loyal to those they left behind or
Will they watch in bitterness as the world moves on with no one left to mourn
While they lie there cold and hardening slowly in that dark room
Are there others left behind like me who lie beside a friend, a mother, a daughter, a son
And feel the silent breath of wind flowing past as a loved one's hand slips from their grasp
Who still struggle in the darkness between the light and the dark
Knowing a loved one has passed them by and waits on the other side
What they choose the light or the dark?
But which is which? I do not know.
Is it life and death or death and life?
But I doubt anyone else knows that I am still breathing
As a white sheet covers my face, my wheels are unlocked
The stretcher moves smoothly forward towards the room
Where so many lie cold, hard and stacked a mile high
But fate seems to have a different idea of what my future holds
As while I feel my heartbeat slowing and the peacefulness it brings
I feel a rush of wind as two cold hard arms lift me high
And hold me protectively as the light begins to fade into night
I feel the smooth gentle movement taking me far away
From those I love lying together still and cold
Then a slight pain before the world bursts into flames
An eternity waiting silently as the dawn approaches day
Or is it twilight leaving the day to turn black so still and cold
I know one-shots don't normally get the reviews but please, please review, they are much appreciated. Thanks for reading!
This was my first ever Twilight poem however I'm no longer taking recommendations since unfortunately I'm not a big fanfiction writer and I couldn't get the right flow happening, my sincere apologies to those who asked. I haven't been writing in ages and kind of neglected my account however I'm finally started to get back into the groove of things and there's now information on how to find my original writing in my profile if you're interested in my writing style.
