This came to me the other night so I scribbled it down on the back of a magazine in the dark. Lets see if I can decipher it now.
In Boo's room all painted in pink
there is a feeding pump with lights that blink and
alarms that ring if the tube has a kink.
And an IV Pole and a feeding bag full
of Pediasure, good for body and soul.
And an air purifier and a humidifier
and a pulse oximeter with 5 feet of wire.
And a night stand and a floor fan
and a red lit probe taped to Boo's foot or hand.
And Breath Right Strips and Tender Grips
and Albuterol and Tylenol
and a princess night light shining down the hall.
Goodnight to all your special things too:
Good night wire, and humidifier
goodnight fan and IV stand
Goodnight Grips and Goodnight Strips
Goodnight meds like Prevacid
and goodnight to pumps that keep you fed.
Goodnight to steady vital signs
Goodnight to tube and probe and lines
Goodnight to blinking lights and beeps
Goodnight to Boo, now fast asleep.
