Poem – Into White (By Melissa R. Mendelson)

Into White


Love was the heart

nestled in soft, white sheets,

beating with beauty,

and glistening with

rays of life.

Love are the lights

in a mother’s eyes

as she brushes the hair

of her young daughter

and then takes her

by the hand

to lead her daughter

into the world outside,

protecting her

with her mighty wings,

but nothing could protect her

from the darkness within.

And the mother’s love inside

slowly fades to black.

An angel dies

into soft, white sheets,

never to step foot

outside again

or to take flight

into the heart

of her daughter’s dreams.

Love is left broken,

in the deep white.
