Calista's Poem

By MercyChristine, Oak Grove, MN

I will never see the sun rise
I will never see it set
I will never see fireflies
Or a spider’s sparkling net

I will never see a rainbow
Painted 'cross the sky
I will never see the stars glow
Or the twinkle in your eye.

I will never see you smile
I will never see your tear
But I can hold you for a while
As long as you are near

And I can feel the heat
Of the rising and setting sun
And I can hear flies’ wings in fleet
Steady as a beating drum.

I can smell the scent of rain
As it washes clean the earth
And I will not complain
About my curse from birth
