When There’s Nothing You Can Do
Sat down in a circle of six of us, being there for you.
Crickets chirped. The stars were so beautiful and visible.
Two girls on both sides of you had their arms on your back,
For reassurance that they were there
Reminding you quietly that you’re not alone
We all prayed independently, sat in silence
Staring at you, then at the stars
It was a peaceful moment, yet my anxiety made me worry so bad
I didn’t know if you hit your head or if you had any critical injuries
