Don't Hug Me

Don't Hug Me ....


I arrive at the scene of your dying loved one,

You look at me as your only hope,

I know I could take the easy road and just call it, but my empathy and selfish want as to
not deal with your sudden realization that your loved one is gone",

Makes me run the code ...

I work my protocols to the ER, watching your loved ones eyes slowly lose life,

only thinking of you and your soon to be known pain ...

Arrival at the ER is most concerned about covering my ass and sell this tragedy like a
used car and hope they buy it. ..

Now I face you, still full of hope that somehow I saved the day as you do not know what
lies behind code curtain number 1 ...

You embrace me with the Hug of your life and thank me with tears in your eyes ...

Knowing that all I did was give you false hope and protected myself from your grief ...
Don't thank me, and especially Don't Hug
