Sweet Baby

grown girl
independent full of life
never complaining
the ugly card dealt

staying healthy
staying safe
never complaining

thousands of pokes
night and day
never complaining
day and night

stealing in the dark
beautiful girl sleeping
hold a hand ready a finger

noooo, mommy

the sound catches my heart
compressed with nostalgia and heartbreak
the voice of a precious
innocent five year old baby

a tired voice
deep from the soul
all trusting with wonder
the protector inflicting

noooo, mommy

petting a troubled brow
gulping tears I'm sorry
shhh, all done
sleep sweet baby
