Moving On

by Ken Capps

The light seems sucked out from the room 

Exhausted, panting, I struggle for breath,

My baby no longer in my womb

Where there should have been new life, only death.

There is no escape from my grief

Emotionally torn, I wail and cry ,

I have been robbed by a cruel thief

And all I need to know is, WHY?

No one knows the depth of my grief

The empty anguish of my pain,

How will I ever find  relief

All efforts at comfort are in vain.

I know I must move on

But pain pierces me like a knife,

My beautiful, fragile child has gone

And I am left with a shattered life.

I focus and try to get along

Do what it takes, whatever the cost,

Do my best and try to be strong

And try to come to terms with my loss.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.


These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
