The Fever

January 3, 2009
The hurt
The pain
The misery unfolds
As she waits
And she watches
Her mother slowly and unfathomably dies
The blank stare in her eyes
Held cold and incredulously to her mothers face
That was slowly withering away
The uncontrollable tears
Were unbearable to watch
The fever was taking the life of her mother
Then her mother took in her last full breath
As her life was taken from her
Just as others lives had been impartially taken
By the fever of 1793
