enveloping the mind
contorting the thoughts
of the little girl
destroying her
wrapping a black cloak
around her gagging brain
while sitting
on her bedroom floor

the mother
incased in sorrow
locked tight
in a cage of despair
as she watches
her daughter
slowly slip away
into a world of disease

molds this family
crushes it's foundation
tears down
what is left
smashes the core
unravels the sewn
erases hope
for better days

crouched by her daughter
in a hospital room
is the desperate mother
feeling stabbed mentally
bleeding guilt
breathing agaony
becuase of
her dying daughter
and prays

to the woman's
cry for help
for her dying daughter
of her dead husband
confessing sins
committed in the past
and asks for forgiveness
and he decides

from above
roll over
gurgling thunder
pelting rain
to the city below
except for one area
with a break in the clouds
leaks light through
a hospital window

the woman's soul
as she sees
a form
floating quietly
towards her
and she begins
to cry

An angel
walks up to her
wipes away
her tears
and touches
her shoulder
she looks up
into the face
of her husband

she knows
without words
why he was there
she nodded
and wrapped
herself around him
against his silk robe
and his vibrant warmth
then she lets go

Her eyes
flutter open
from a deep sleep
and sits up
to watch
a bright form
gold as a star
through the window

takes over
the woman's mind
as she
listens to what
the doctor says
of the miracle
of her daughter's disease
and is thankful

got better
a Christian life
her husband
was happy
and her daughter
was touched
by her angel.

Very good work, and I'm not one for free verse. I look forward to reading more from you.

Shall I indulge in flights of fancy hampered by clipped wings?

Uplifting, so beautiful. I am truly impressed by your talent and the amount of feeling in your work.
