Sleeping Beauty By: Larry Cox - May 25, 2012
She lays not so quiet with hoses and needles
wishing and praying she wasn't so feeble.
Mouth open and roaring like a waterfall reaching its end,
nurses watching so carefully, extending their hands to lend.
Her puppy leaning lifelike, nestled in her neck,
once again the kindness comes in for their check.
Not a whisper, not a sound, and there's no one around ...
she hops up from the bed with a leap and a bound.
Amazed at the legs, the arms and the feet
are painless once again - the disease she must have beat!
Out of the door and to the right, being so careful not to fall,
towards the desk and the light, to the man in the hall.
He turns with a smile she remembers so clear,
extends his arms to claim all of her fear.
Her children now crying ever so loud,
she rushes between them, "You've made me ever so proud!"
"But now, my loves, I must leave this place
to be with your Dad and kiss our grandson's face.
I will see you one day when your time has come,
'til then, my kids, remain bonded as one."
I wrote this for you Mom…with love.
