       Isn't it amazing what it can take to make us realize that someone means much more to us than a simple friend.

    PS Elevator to Eternity has a double meaning

    It was the elevator to eternity
    Every agonizing second an hour, a month, a year of time
    The floors displayed in angry, glaring red numbers
    Above the doors that held me prisoner
    Screeching brakes and slamming metal
    Wailing sirens and frantic paramedics
    A heart-wrenching message in a flat, toneless voice
    “Trevor was in an accident.”

    Then – finally –
    The doors slid silently open
    And I rushed to your side

    The hospital room was stark, bare
    But for the quick flashes
    Of the TV on the wall
    But I barely noticed
    As the breath caught in my throat
    And tears pooled in my eyes

    For there you lay

    But it wasn’t you…
    It wasn’t my energetic best friend
    Crazy and larger-than-life

    You were deathly still
    A wiry tangle of tubes in each arm
    Leg wrapped tight with bandages
    And bound in a hateful black brace
    And those wonderful warm
    Teasing brown eyes
    Hidden beneath eyelids
    Clenched tight with unconscious pain
    The only indication of life
    The steady
    Of the cold, unfeeling monitors

    I slowly sank into a chair beside you
    Leaned over quietly and
    Softly brushed the hair from your pale face
    Reached down
    And held your limp hand in mine

    Your eyes fluttered open

    And in that moment…

    I loved you

      Yes, when someone's death approaches--a close friend in this case-- it puts things in perspective. It's almost tragic what it takes for someone to tell someone else how they truly feel. I sort of feel like I'd have to be on my deathbed to say this sort of thing as well... in regards to someone I've known for what seems eternity... and more.

    This is touching and bittersweet... and I hope he makes it through alright.
