Normal by Maria Roth

Another Poem for Audrey

Let me carry you, Baby Doll
Let me kiss your hair before it's all gone

I wish we could be normal again
Right now

Let me do this for you--
I'll take the medicines,
The needle-stings,
The pain
I'll wear the scary mask and hold very still so you don't have to

Give me the radiation!
Give me
the chemo!

I'll stay home while you go out and
Play wherever you want, with all the normal kids
Among the germs and viruses
Without hand sanitizer

Take my body to protect you
Take all of my blood
Whatever you need
Take my stomach
Give me your nausea and constipation
Take my strong legs
And run

If one of us must be sick, let it be me

Even when God says no
I'll still try to take it all away

Let me carry you, Baby Doll...Go here for the rest!
