Visiting Hours Are Now Over

The bed was empty
when I arrived.
The pillow still held
the shape of your head
and hospital issued slippers
lay beneath the bedside tray.
A tangle of electrodes
dangled from a silent monitor.
Standing there surrounded
by dead flowers and balloons
I hugged the pillow to my chest
and said goodbye.
