April 2012

For Diana
I can't do it. You can do it. 
What if I can't do it?  You have to do it.
I'm so tired.  Close your eyes - take your rest. 
I don't want to do it.  Only you can do it.
Go go go!!!  Hard hard hard!!!  PUSH!!!!
Make it stop.  It will stop.
It will never stop.  It will stop.
It's just pain.  It's your son.
I can't do it.  You must do it.
He's not coming.  He's coming. 
I don't want to do it.  You're doing it.
I just want to be done.  You're almost done.
He's coming!  He's coming!  He's here!  He's right here!
Here he is! Look look look!  Your son.
I didn't think I could do it.  I knew you could do it.
I can't believe I did it.  You did.
