My child


A heartbeat, broken

A letter, unsent


She suffocates in sunshine.

And rejoices in rain.


The world does not spin

For a time

Until she realizes


She can still hear the rhythm

Remember the warmth

Eyelids closed.

One soft puff






The tiny fingers uncurl,

Small mouth falls open,

Angel, sleeping sweetly.
