In the surgery waiting room.

In a frigid room
Of fluorescent sunshine
These people sit in silence
In sympathetic chairs
Their lives on hold
Hoping for the best
United in their agonizing wait
While their loved ones
Sleep under skillful blades
Just down the hall

The TV on the wall
Tries to divert the tension in the room
With shows everyone would rather watch at home
But the phones save the day
As long as they have power
Able to ease the day’s worries
Of those seated in silence
United in their agonizing wait
While their loved ones
Sleep under skillful blades
Just down the hall

The hours are long
Every second a nervous step forward
With cautious optimism
Waiting for the surgeon to come
And say it all went well
But for now
They sit in silence
United in their agonizing wait
While their loved ones
Sleep under skillful blades
Just down the hall
