Darkest Moment's Passing By

it was already dark outside silence had totally ruined the night only my lampshade in my room was at my side trying to comfort me in all my sorrows and trembling fear inside as soft tick-tocks of the clock were heard my heartbeat increased its rate I asked, “Are they reckoning that few time for him has already been left?” I began to feel, I was already in abyss of despair the phone had rung for the second time my mom and aunt once again were at the other end of the line thunder storms blasted followed by a torrent of rain when they asked me to talk to my dad to finally say goodbye to him I tried to talk to him but he could no longer answer me despite the silence at the other end I didn’t stop begging him I cried and cried out so hard as the darkest moment started creeping through my veins until my aunt answered the phone in lieu of him begging me back to let him go, so as to release him from all the pains to say the word goodbye to my dearest dad was the hardest thing to do in my whole life it had totally broken my heart and seemed as if I was losing my mind so, I kept crying out and begging him to fight he’s miles away and I couldn’t just reach him out or to be right there on his side I knew he can hear me, so I kept reminding him about what I’ve promised when I went back home to spend a short time and took care of him I’d promised that I’ll fly right back home after my work to take care of him again and walk him out of the door together we supposed to walk around our house with his arms on my shoulders my aunt begged me for the last time to finally free him it was against my will but I decided to do what was best for him when he was finally gone, I unconsciously screamed alone in my room miles away from home, I was in deep pain I felt like I was totally engulfed by the darkest of the night I rolled my body on bed, crying out loud and hugging my pillows so tight wishing someone had to put me into trance, so I closed my eyes while in prayer, I imagined him waving goodbye as he finally went up there through the brightest light

    Lenora this is such a heart wrenching poem but at the same time shows how much love is felt in your family which is just wonderful....there is a place in the Bible that says the just are called home to escape evil because they are loved by God. It has always been a comfort to me...blessings...

    Lenora, it's hard to let go...but, God never gives us more than we can handle. Instead, hold on...to those special memories and find comfort in the time you spent together. Keep writing....about him. Friends, RAY

    oh my gosh, how terrible for you not to be there, Leonora, you loved him so much and I can sense your intense pain in this very heartfelt poem of yours. Glad to see you posted something new, but sad that this is the day of the year he had died. Was it a short time ago,Dear? Or did he pass away a long time ago. Just wanted to stop by today and say hi. Luv, Andrea

    You make me cry ...... so touching and sad Leonora! - My mother died unexpectedly and so quickly that no one got to say goodbye, and it hurts to think about. - You have a sad poem here, but it is also very beautiful written. - Good luck in the contest, I hope it will stand on top of the winner list. - Wishing you a wonderful new week, my dear friend. - Love to you. - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)
