The day after...

I went to work today, sure we'd all be talking about last night. I was busting at the seams; still clapping and cheering. Alas, it was business as usual. How could that be? My life has changed. I felt like I just had a baby and no one noticed. Oh, they're just young and don't know how hard we've worked to get to last night. I told myself that to quite my emotional swell. But the patients...why didn't they say anything? Their lives will change. Don't they know that? Our social worker noticed. We hugged for a moment and then he left to pick up free baby clothes from a donation site. I want to bask in it. I want to talk endlessly about the future.
