Pacing through children's hospital halls
Hopeful stick-figure artwork adorn the hospital walls
Desperate visits, no parent, ever wants to make
Search for a diagnosis, and the right path to take
The day our world came tumbling down
Forced smile, to hide a very fearful frown
Learning his heart wasn’t built quite right
Along for a bumpy ride, very difficult flight
The air inside my body seems to disappear
Intense buzzing sound fills my hot-red ears
Leaving there with more questions than answers in my head
Not knowing where to turn, my heart fills up with dread
This wasn’t what I expected, but what I felt in my heart all along,
I have to keep going, have to stay tough, need to remain strong.
Our journey was just beginning, little did we know.
My husband and I had been given an EXTRA SPECIAL HEART HERO!
