The Test Of Love

The Test Of Love

A Poem by Silent Serenity also known as Raven Shadows

Washed purely in love a miracle was born
A long waited daughter was their firstborn
A tiny little girl so soft & sweet
Features so delicate right down to her feet

She was desperately wanted for such a long time
They took every procedure, enduring the climb
To finally where a tiny bundle of love
Was embraced in a family to be so proud of

Enjoying all the dynamics of being a humble parent
Love was poured out amoungest her so to inherent
Even to her very first words she was proven smart
Showing a passion within her soul right from the heart

"Mommy May I" was said so politely with such a smile
It was her only words she could say for awhile
Before she would point her little finger out to ask
"Mommy May I" was softly spoken before each task

A year has past & suddenly a monster was there
It seized the very exsistance with no life to spare
Their firstborn fighting the battle very brave
They were determined not to bury her in the grave

A long awaited daughter with a purpose in life
About ready to battle this evil under the knife
But what would come next would be the test of love
Something no parent should ever deal with or hear of

With delicate features, baby blue eyes & soft hair
They knew this would be the last moment they'd share
For "Mommy May I" was whispered softly from her voice
A test of compassion & love would be their choice

For her little, fragile body had no more fight in it
For love of their firstborn they would have to submit
Finally sleeping peacfully she was an angel to view
She'll always be loved, their Suzie-Q, who was only two

This poem is about the silent killer of cancer and how even the young can be affected by this monster....cancer is the abuser and as innocent as Suzie-Q was she was the bravest young little lady that ever crossed my dreams....that's right Suzie-Q entered my dreams one night, awoke me in the middle of the night and I created her story....but if you truly think about it, how many parents today, everyday fight to keep their own children alive and away from this monster....I have had many friends who have lost their loved ones to Cancer so I believe Suzie-Q is their voice and she shared her story with me.......

Hmm. Sure made me think.

From what I gather this is about a child who is abused by their parent(s) and eventually gets so "aggravating" (perhaps, if not just blind abuse) that they kill her.

The flow of this was nice, as was the rhyme scheme. The way you went about writing this was good in the sense that the ending was slightly unexpected. It goes from being lighthearted and fun to lighthearted and horrible.
