The hot humid air was difficult to breathe in,
But she held on to her sleeping 3 year old, although she was gasping.
The shadows at the back of the station scared her stiff,
But she courageously stood & thought about the tiff.
There was nowhere to go yet she waited on for a train
Wanting to go far & never come back again
Exhausted, she lay down on a chair,
Woke up with a startle to feel the cool wind in her hair.
He smiled down at her & held her on,
And the little one stirred at the approaching train horn..
