Pantoum by Crystal Romero

Angel in the Room

Her big brown eyes look up to me.
Laying in the hospital bed so small with only you by my side.
“Mommy who’s the man sitting next to you?”
Feeling so helpless, tears fall like rain.

Laying in the hospital bed so small with only you by my side.
She smiles I want to make cookies.
Feeling so helpless, tears fall like rain.
Bright yellow walls line the hallway.

She smiles I want to make cookies.
Watching kids work together, helping each other.
Bright yellow walls line the hallway.
Like sardines we gather in a tiny room.

Watching kids work together, helping each other.
Playing with Barbie’s and singing songs
Like sardines we gather in a tiny room.
Pink polka dots pajamas ready to wear.

Playing with Barbie’s and sing songs.
Butterfly kisses before bed.
Pink polka dots pajamas ready to wear.
Bright street light shines through the windows.

Butterfly kisses before bed.
Her big brown eyes look up to me.
Bright street lights shine through the windows.
“Mommy who’s the man sitting next to you?”
