In response to prompt : Glimmer
Glimmer Of Hope!
Each day she sat beside his bed,
Hoping he’d open his eyes and smile,
The people around her sat quietly,
It seemed she was the only one,
Who had a glimmer of hope,
perhaps,God will answer her prayer,
All she wanted was two more years,
She fell asleep hoping against hope,
Someone shook her, she looked,
The verdict was, ‘he passed away
The clock of life is silent forever!’
In response to prompt : Shimmer
Did you ever watch a glow-worm shimmer?
They’re so tiny, I know not how they glitter.
If you see them close,
You’ll curl up your nose,
Those amazing glowworms how well they shimmer!
