What Could Have Been?

Timothy Jarmon

December 01, 2020

Tiny little fingers

and tiny little toes

What she could have been

only heaven knows

Growing in the safety

of her hiding place

A beautiful little head

and a precious little face

Yawning and stretching

and kicking around

Moving and responding

to her mother’s sound

A future chemist

or an astronaut in space

Someone to cure cancer

for the human race

A wonderful mind

that could have found

answers to the questions

that have kept us bound

A precious life

so quickly is gone

And now we’re reaping

the death we’ve sown

To take her life

is a horrible sin

And it’s sad to think

What could have been?
