You see it coming to pass, and there's nothing you can do to stop it. The life of someone in your close family is slowly ebbing away, and you are helpless in the situation. The doctor's look at you with those eyes and let you know that you are in the last days of this person's life. Naturally, this is something you don't want to see or accept. You realize the depth of what is happening and know that they can't last much longer. Yet, you wonder if there is something you can do to give them hope or the "want to", to fight for their life.
