Books to Glow

Waiting for doctor’s diagnosis
Made me quite anxious, nervous
Fearing SARS or Tuberculosis
Isolation left me feeling worse.

So many tests, exams, specimen
I lost count of the blood-work
And worse than food regimen
I had to fast, on the clock.

Then I came across this library
Lifting my spirits, my mind aglow
Offered me a blissful ride, literally
More than mere books in a row.
