My Child (standard:poetry, 101 words)

a child's pain

I reach out to touch her as she sits quietly there, 

But she pushes me away, seemingly without a care. 

I see that gentle face and just want to kiss her, 

But she screams,"No", and my emotions become a blur. 

All I want to do is take away her pain, 

But only she can do that, my attempts are all in vain. 

She says that I should just stay as I am, 

That she is trying to heal herself, my sweet little lamb. 

Oh God, how can you allow so much sorrow, 

How brave she is as she faces each tomorrow.
