Night Visits

Night Visits

The minutes tick by
I watch the clock,
    can't sleep
It strikes midnight
and into your room I creep.
Not for a tuck in or even a drink,
but to test your blood sugar
    while you sleep.
Your sweet little face,
your "Barrie" held tight,
these awful visits in the night.
I hate this diabetes
    it won't go away!
Please God let her numbers
be good today.
One test down,
thousands to go,
I need to be strong for her
I love her so.
