Dying Plant

You have been without sunlight for far too long, and beacuse of this, you wilt.

Your leaves wrinkle and droop, and form a gray shade of death

making it's way to your roots.

I see the way you cling to life like a mother to her babe.

Your fight is long but your hearts is strong;

you'll make it through this time.

I will lift you up and place you in the windosill

the light will shine onto your wilting grace.

And just to see you green again will bring a smile unto my face.
