Ambulance

Sirens crying loudly, wailing along an asphalt path.
Red lights flashing as the ambulance goes by.
I looked at the van as it whooshed past,
wondering who was inside,
what happened,
are they ok,
will they be ok,
but before I know it, two red lights have disappeared:
One on the ambulance, and the other at the intersection,
and I am left powerless to help.
