waiting for a miracle

she is struggling
to live
breathing
is difficult
COPD took over
from smoking
starting as a teen

I do not have
words to comfort her
I can sit
hug
& cry with her

how many days?
some say
maybe a year
others say
a month
six months
at the most

she is struggling now
as I hold her
in my arms
sending prayers
to Jesus
for a miracle

yes, I remember
she was popular
and now
her phone
no longer rings

she counts on me
we both have lived
through the seasons
of life

we are taking
a day
at a time
looking for
a miracle
that
we pray
will happen

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
