My Little Soldier

When Children are very sick parents try and blame themselves and  sometimes feel immense and overwhelming guilt and all though they know they are not to blame they continue to do so. Hope and acceptance of an illness is sometimes the only way to get through it sometimes with really positive outcomes !   
My Little Soldier

I look at him 
His perfect ivory skin 
Peaceful in his drug induced sleep 
I know within 
War rages,one he must win !

I look at him 
His perfect potential life 
Peaceful innocence of his internal strife. 
I know within 
I'd die to save him ,my kin !

I look at him 
My perfect child 
Peaceful yet I'm forever riled, 
I feel within,
He's paying for my sin! 

I look at him 
My perfect babe, 
I search my heart and soul, 
Dissecting my life whole 
I feel no shame, 
Yet he's still in pain 

I look at him 
My perfect son, 
I promise him all, till 
This war is won 
For I know within 
We'll conquer and win! 


  1. I will die to save him, my kin...

  10. Oh, such protective love... very emotionally beautiful!

  11. This is how we all feel when a child is seriously ill. You do express that helplessness so well and I note this thought; "I feel within,
    He's paying for my sin!" and am bothered that we are so steeped in the delusion of sin and sacrifice that we can think for a moment that a merciful god would kill a child to punish a parent!
    But we do unfortunately.

  12. Splendid. Heart felt and sincere. All blessings to you both.

  13. sweet.

  14. How beautifully you portrayed a parent's love for their child. If any of this comes from a current need then I hope for a positive outcome for you both. You touched me deeply, no parent should have to feel the helplessness you depict.
