The cold night

Written by: sadaf syed

Mother tries to light a fire using 
a spindle,
Which could provide heat n 
light.
For a freezing snow storm 
which grew 
Would not let them survive the 
night
At last she got the fire started 
and looked around
Their empty home 
And exclaimed,"If only I had 
another log of wood"

The girl unaware that their life's 
hourglass was running
Out of sand,
Watched her mom struggle 
which immensely hurt her.
She though little ,understood 
her mom's words
The only doll she had was of 
wood.
She laid her doll on the fire ,
Smiling to herself ,stepped 
away.

With both tears of sadness and 
pride her mom
Knew not how to react
For she may never be able to 
buy another doll
Then her daughter who was 
just four
Said,"I am a big girl now,I 
don't need dolls."
Then she caressed her in her 
lap all night long
As she was after all her 
beautiful,priceless doll..
