Nothing is harder than waiting for test results for you child.

Mother’s Nightmare

As I sit waiting for the phone to ring
To learn the results of your biopsy,
A Rhapsody in Blue plays on the radio
Soothing my anxious mind.
Slowly memories parade across my mind.
You on lying on a blanket with Taro
Watching fish swim in the aquarium.
Swinging and crying out “Higher Mommy.”
The Fourth of July Parade cresting the hill
You in the front row baton twirling merrily
Your joy and beauty on your wedding day
Each of these milestones our small victories
Over the doctors’ doubts that you would thrive.
This moment makes me want to scream,
“God, this isn’t fair!”

I just read this two months after the fact. I do not know the outcome, all I can say and do is pray. I hope all is well now with your Daughter. I do not know if you remember me but I was a friend and fan of yours 6 years ago when I last wrote. I hope I still am.

All we can give to our children to defend themselves is the armor made with our parental love. Prayers help too.

Heart-rending reading, feeling your emotions.
I will pray for you and your daughter tonight.

As parents the worst thing in our world is to be helpless when they are hurt or ill, nothing matches the ache or pain that grips our hearts in a steal vise when we have to deal with it.

Having gone through the same experience with my own daughter I had to grab for the Kleenex when I read your poem. I don't know you Bobbi but my heart goes out to you.
