A lifetime of love
by Susan Carol Kleinhans

Innocent babe 
slumbered in 
a splendid crib. 
Pale shades of 
pink and yellow 
filled the 
cozy room. 
She'd only left 
the warm serenity 
of her mother's womb... 
six months ago. 
Sickly 
baby girl... 
sweat streaking 
down her one 
thin curl. 
Blue skin... 
blue lips 
failed to 
mar her beauty. 
Angelic one 
never cried. 
Her parents tried 
to cope. 
To hang on to 
their one, 
thin hope. 
One operation... 
already failed. 
They couldn't 
bear to bring 
more pain her way 
with a second one 
that wouldn't 
save the day. 
They'd bring her 
what joy and love 
they could. 
She would 
return 
a lifetime 
of love 
with each and every 
labored breath. 
They would somehow 
face her early death...
