Sitting in the intensive care lobby of the apollo hospital, every second feels like an hour. There is something about hospitals that scares, disarms and leaves me helpless like a leaf in a storm. The effect is all the more pronounced when it's a near & dear one who is suffering. In this case it's my pa. His is a heart condition which required a major surgery. That's done now. We've been here for over fifteen days now. A few more days they say. But it feels so far away. Friends and close relatives provide solace. Yet it doesn't do anything to lower the hearts pace.
Friends all tried to warn me But I held my head up high All the time they warned me But I only passed them by They all tried to tell me But I guess I didn't care I turned my back and Left them standing there
All the burning bridges that have fallen after me All the lonely feelings and the burning memories Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door Burning bridges lost forevermore
Somewhere, this song rings a bell - a big church bell. I should listen to my friends more often!!! They only mean well :-)
