I am standing in a hallway looking through the glass
I see a woman sitting in the chairs with her head in hands
She seems to be grieving or maybe just in disbelief
I try to come through the door, but it is stuck

I keep pulling and pulling but it will not open
She raises her head and looks up like she can hear me
I am pounding on the door open handed now to no avail
No one seems to hear me or even know I'm there

I start to walk down the hallway to find someone
I can see people, but it seems they cannot see me
I scream to see if I can hear my voice
It seems I cannot even hear myself

I am breaking out in a cold sweat now
As I head back towards the lady through the glass
The one I went to look for help for
She is at the counter now, and she is crying harder

The receptionist seems uncaring, unfeeling
The lady is beside herself with grief
Her body is trembling with every sob
Even though I cannot hear her, I know the signs

There must be a loved one  near that she needs
Through the glass she is sobbing out her questions
The uncaring lady inside just looks up and closes her eyes
As if she is trying to wish this poor woman away

When she opens them again, the lady is still there
I am still in the hall punching at the glass
I am screaming, "help her, help her"
They do not hear my pleas or begging

I keep trying the handle to get inside
It seems that is a wasted effort
I realize I am sobbing in the hall
The lady inside and me out

A few moments pass by and the receptionist comes near
She acts like she can see me and she doesn't reconsider
She gently touches my shoulder and wakes me up
She says, "you can go in now"

For its all been a horrible dream.
just a poem

I think it is the right thing to do, to write right away what is going through our mind...
