Only one kind of nursing for her

Neonatal ICU

Her heart pounded compassion

For the newly born unfinished ones


Her own large  Irish family

Seven children, sixteen grandchildren

And now 

Two new twin granddaughters


Pat sighed deeply

 A heaviness to her downward stare

A glistening coated her eyes

Beautiful identical twins 


 Kara and Karen

But Kara's cord

Had strangled her

She would never be like her sister


From the abyss of absolute darkness

She released

A silent scream

Impotent  to heal


Her loved one

And I knew

Kara had become

Her only child
