Waiting

byUnderYourSpell©

For my 91 year old Mother in acute renal failure .. fighting on ..


Frail fingers pluck
at the counterpane
in hospital blue,
as you awake from
a drug induced sleep.
Oxygen assisted whispers
draw us closer to your side,
but you slip down again
into that dark place
where the fight is
Yours
Mother ..
