Dignity by Judith Prescott

We check in, I feel so tired.  The journey was an ordeal but finally we have arrived.  She doesn’t want to be here, it’s for me and only me she has put her prejudices aside for, and I am grateful.
A meal which I do not eat and she pushes around the plate, conversation is difficult for us, we make some attempt.
Tomorrow cannot come soon enough for me.  For her?  She wants time to stop.
Now is the dawn of a new day, and I shall drink my last cocktail here in this clinic holding her hand in mine..
