Now this sounds interesting…shows empathy

She held her babe tight

You’d think she

would die,

To be; bereft

of the child

And when the child cried,

She sighed and

she sighed

For what else

was she to do?

For moments long gone

I watched her alone 

As she held her child 

in her arms

And as day

turned to night

I saw them move on 

-the girl and 

the babe in her arms

I like this…(some humanity…okay…don’t mean it like that) just shows that my 1994 ‘self’ did have a caring side (wasn’t completely insular)
