The Yellow Room

Soft golden hue paints her face,
Camouflages the sorrow,
Clinging to the corner of her thin lips,
Weary of wearing the complaisant smile of evanescent comfort.

She sits by the child's bed,
Her tired hand runs through its shiny brown hair,
Whose luster slowly fades away with every passing sundown,
And the flickering light in its eyes has been put off for the day.

She looks into the glorious sunset,
Beaming from the far away throne of the Mighty Heaven,
The new abode of the child's destiny,
A never-land from her vivid childhood dreams.

She grips her child's tender hand,
To buy her time the doctors denied,
To make it hold on to life a tiny bit harder,
To watch it sleep in its little bed for one more night.

Her amber eyes seek the sun,
That paints the room a golden yellow every dawn and dusk,
And her wish grows only bigger and more human,
As she hopes for a miracle to happen...
