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

screaming inside
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.
