Her tiny sun.

The dust fell
Like snowflakes
Caught in the rays
Of the tiny sun
Beside her bed

She could turn
The tiny sun
On and off
With a button
She stared at
Her sun until
Her eyes burned
White and she
Couldn’t see anything
Anymore but the
Sun until finally
As if she
Had pushed the
Button to turn
The sun off
The light in
Her eyes went
Out and the
Sun didn’t shine

Oh, I do so like this! It's so whimsical yet the ending is almost startlingly bleak. (Just like, well... a lamp turning off suddenly!)
