"Lil Hands"

this is one that i think everyone can releate to somehow it's about the NICU or Neo Natel Intensive Care Unit. Which is more or less a hospital for premature babies. this poem "Lil Hands" is for EVERYONE who knows someone in, used to be in, or was in the NICU themselves

"Lil Hands"

An Idea thought, now a mission to life brought, the goal sought to save lives fought of the smallest of hands do capture the most hearts.

to give, in our nature is it not?

Thirty-six hours, deprived of sleep yes,

THOU SHALL NOT REST

until every last

LIL HAND

feels breath fill their breast!!!

A stranger's story past

(though amungst family the tears are cast.)

Records shattered and expectations bettered now countless

LIL HANDS

are

GRANTED

Yes, their moment is shourded with heartbreaking uncertenty.

The warmth of a Province's touch they snuggle and the struggle they face, but for a milisecond fleeting is forgotten.

The cries from the smallest of

LIL HANDS

evokes tears upon our eyes, and yet an idea thought, now for two decades is a mission to life brought yes, time elapsed, though the goal sought hath yet to change to save a life of lives fought...

NO

...

SAVED!!!

Through this money pledged and gift recieved all the

LIL HAND's

to stand, to live, to see, to breathe, to dream

a chance they have

LIL HANDS
