It's not fair when a child dies
I'm a pediatrician and today one of my patients died.
When I told the parents, they fell apart and cried.
I felt so sorry for the parents after I told them.
I did all I could for their son but I couldn't save him.
I've lost about ten kids over the years.
I feel so helpless when I see the parents burst into tears.
When I'm able to save a child, I feel really great.
But when I lose a child, it's something that I really hate.
I know that I'm not God, I know that I can't save them all.
But when each child dies, it makes me a little more bitter and appalled.
I can't save them all but I sure do try.
It's not fair when a child dies.
