I'm broken beyond bandaids and needles, lay your head on my chest dear. Can you hear my heart? It's stopped.
"I can hear it, mum."
Of course you can't. Now, I'll ask you to stay with your Gram.... She'll take care of you.
"Mum no, you can't leave!"
Medicine has failed me dear, go.
"Stop giving in! I'll not let you go without me!"
No! Not you dear.... Not you.
"Stay. Stay, because I count on you. Father's gone mum. They can't take you too."
What's that sound dear?
"That's your heart mum.... That's your heart beating. It never stopped. Mum he's gone but I'm not. I love you."
I love you too.
Yes dear, I do.
