For My Babies

Inside my heart races
Yet I keep my reserve
I hate these blood tests
As much as they do

Keep calm!
They need to draw
On your strength

Sitting in a green chair
I offer my arm
To give of me
So they may find a cure

DNA links us together
And they will sequence it
And grow cell lines
Hoping to find shared genes

My girls gather around
Meggie holds my hand
Grace's eyes study
As life flows from me...for my babies
