"Loss, it seems, brings about the worst kind of sorrow." -Micheal Ernst
@TunesOfEadon I am so sorry to hear that. He sounds like a great person. Hopefully the two of you will be reunited, one day.
I really like this. It pulled me in and I felt so much for this child. V.
Wow. This is really really powerful. The phrase "... and if he would return by dawn" gave me shivers. Also the ending, "sitting, watching, waiting" literally made me tear up. I really, really like this poem! You're really good!
I really like how you tied in an experience and a story and told it in the forum of the poem, the emotions, the misunderstanding... I felt like I was all there experiencing it too :)
This is a useful piece my friend. Love to you and be blessed.
A very sadly expressed poetic offering...deeply revealing share you bring here...well done piece!
