Dehlia's Angel

Crescent Moon shines down...
troubles the heart of little Dehlia.

Framed in a crimson-draped window,
she gently touches the white roses
that she places in the arms of her doll.
Dark eyes fill her mind with comfort, glow
with love from the starry heavens above.

You are my beautiful angel, she thinks.
Are you beside me, Mama? I miss
your black hair that you tucked inside
that floppy navy hat you always wore.
Mama, can you see the white dress
that you made for me? I am wearing it today.

I see you in my white dress, my blue blanket
that we would wrap ourselves in on those
cold and wintry nights, in the white roses that  
you grew in your garden of special delights.

Crescent Moon shines down...
binds up the broken heart of little Dehlia.

Crimson drapes wrap themselves around
the past where she lives inside the warmth
of her dear Mother's soft laughter.
