little girl in hospital waiting room surrounded by crayons
sat on the carpet, colouring in pictures of doctors and nurses
waiting for her consultancy of her mri and the blue crayon
a little boy in a bandanna was using
she coloured their faces in blue
it didn't look like much but she smiled proudly
as they told her the nasty thing in her head was shrinking and she was good at staying in the lines
and even though she'd need more treatment and the colours were wrong
her mum put the picture of the scan on the fridge
she rang nana and nana cried and told granddad
and daddy gave her a high five for being so brave
and little brother said he wanted to be like her some day
mummy gave her some special tablets and a cuddle before bed
she squeezed her little hand where the needles and the crayons marked her skin
and she smiled proudly
her little girls progress
she was going to grow big
