all our yesterdays seem so carefree
and our tomorrows look so dim
your big brown eyes bright with tears
reflected in the glimmer of needles
holding you in my arms
as your body shakes
feeling so damn helpless
not knowing where to turn
seeing your confusion
feeling your anger
hiding my pain
my baby will never be the same.
Sierra, age 6
My daughter, 6 year old Sierra, was diagnosed on May 27, 2003. I wrote this poem her second night in the hospital.
