Blood Transfusion

You were like a hypodermic.
An injection that went
straight to my head.

I got you under my skin
but you turned septic.

It took a very special doctor
to diagnose the condition.

It took a courageous operation
to prevent me from getting
complete blood poisoning.

It took a major blood transfusion.

It took a dedicated man
to die
during the procedure.
