The Patient

He takes a breath every second, when most of take a breathe every 2. 
His face is dripping from his eyes, nose and mouth. 
He coughs and sneezes so often it blends into the background music. 

But, he smiles. 

He smiles at the doctor as she listens to his chest and checks his ears. 
He smiles at the pharmacist as she hands over a shopping bag full of medicines. 
He smiles as he wears his little mask and dances in the kitchen with mom. 

He is the best and I just want him better.

Aww :( I hope Colby is better soon. His cheeks are giving my cheeks circa 1983-1984 a run for their money...!
