She reached up
and parted the curtains
and there amongst the pillows of clouds
nestled the glowing full moon
she longed to hold on to this moment
she had so few left as it was
perhaps on the roof she should sneak again
She turned and stared at the tempting door
it was as good a night as any
she wheeled herself away
to sing beneath the open sky
let the memories and melody flood her
and for a moment she may even sway
and pretend that she was well again
she’d hear his voice
feel the kiss as the wind blew by
and in that moment she’d be whole.
