I am a mom, a wife, & an often disgruntled lab tech. I write, knit, crochet, cook, & just try to make it. My writing blog is wordsontheceiling.tumblr.com if you'd like to check it out. Thanks for hanging out in my head space! ~D


Something took me back there today
Back to the time of bleak hallways and anxiety
The smell of anti-microbial soap and the soft beeps of machines
Carefully timed visits and long lonely trips back home
Tearful hours pumping the liquid gold to make you stronger

My breath caught in my throat as the memory consumed my thoughts
But then you reached for me
Your little hand on my arm
A sweet voice to pull me back from the brink

You are strong now
A tornado on two legs
Giggles and smiles with a messy face and sticky hands
Curious and fearless as you explore the world you entered too soon

Someday I will tell you the story of your fight
Someday you will know just how strong you really are
