What does it mean?

Alex awoke

There was light, there was noise, there was air

She was alive – seeing, hearing, breathing – these were things that living people did

Awake and alive but … …

But nothing made sense

Alex slept

Her family watched and waited

And waited

They didn’t understand the medical jargon

They didn’t understand how the accident had happened

They couldn’t see the future

One word resonated – meaningless
