A husband grasps his wife’s hand in a hospital bed.
“She’s losing a lot of blood!”
“One more push!”
A cry so beautiful it quenches the new mothers pain as she hold’s her son for the first time…
But the lights in her eyes go out.
John’s first birthday.
The sound of fireworks wake him up.
A cry so beautiful it distract his fathers pain.
“We will be ok…”
Another forgotten birthday present.
After 17 years it loses it’s effect.
“Do you still blame me, dad?”
A tear rolls down the old man’s face.
“I’m sorry I couldn’t be a better father.”
John grasps his fathers’s hand in a hospital bed.
