Tranquility

They’re not real … said with a sigh
She acts like they are … they’re not
I played with them too … they don’t talk
But for her … they do … what a plot!
It would seem … a dilemma
Both are in places … unknown
My Mom … enjoys her baby dolls
She protects … plays on her own
She sincerely believes her mission
To care for them … till they’re grown
Another lady … wants to play
But Mother … is stern … says no
They’re not toys … she explains
Fearing … won’t leave them alone
So now … I play … baby dolls
I’m Aunt Sis … she shares with me
The whole time I’m watching her
Slipping … further … away
But these dolls … fill her heart
Ease her mind … tranquility.
