This week our prompt is taken from a quote attributed to the poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear
Use all or part of it within your poem or prose.
Tomorrow will bless
I smoothed his dark hair
And he giggled when I touched his neck.
I kissed his smooth, soft cheek
and watched him snuggle into his pillow.
I shut his light off
with a click
and my heavy footsteps
creaked on our
as I shut off
the hall light.
He sat by himself today
Away from his classmates.
He is immature
His road so alike and so different
from his brother.
I held him as a baby
A mother has so many dreams
for her child.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear.
And we pray
that tomorrow will bless
