Daisy’s Chair


This is a story about a chair.
It’s also a story about
not giving up hope.
A bedroom chair
at the top of a flight of stairs.
Daisy’s chair.
Empty for three weeks.
Protective cover removed
at the thought
that she would never
climb the stairs
or sleep in that chair again.
And morning came.
Daisy climbed those stairs
and reclaimed her chair.
The crisis isn’t over.
Test results still pending.
But Daisy is slowly
shaking off her invalid cloak
and donning her Princess crown.

    Pure emotion laden poetry. It’s been a rough time and you are surely only cautiously being optimistic. But how lovely to see her once again claiming her place on that special chair.
