My best friend

And so the child
Loved to play
Loved to pretend
To fly.
Up she would go
Onto the roof to
Slip and slide
Every day.
Until one time
There was a fog.
It clung to her
Every fibre
Stifled her breath
Her hair hung limp…
But she ignored the
Signs and up
She went
To slip
And slide anyway.
And fell
She did…
Into the arms
Of the Mother
Held safe to the
Breast
Of herself…

My best friend
