D. died today

A piece of writing from my week on Ward 12

D. died today

I saw D. on Monday – it’s Thursday today

I told him about the project – he was interested 

He wanted to be involved

He was expecting a visitor – I told him  I’d come back

D. died today – I didn’t get to go back

I can see his face

I can hear his determination

Heart attack – a surprise

But they couldn’t do anything – in the end

The nurse said’ “we’re all upset”

D. died today.
