Fearing Tomarrow

I'm six years old
I'm sitting on my bed,
my mother walks in
her eyes are all wet.
She sits down beside me
wraps her arms around me tight,
I can tell by the way she's holding me
that somethings not right.
I feel her trembling
I can almost see her pain,
that's when I hear it in her voice
as she begins to explain.
She says David I love you
and I will always be here,
the next words she whispered
filled my heart full of fear.
I feared tomorrow 
and what laid ahead,
now that I'm six years old 
and just learned my father is dead.

    David, Once again, we find ourselves trapped in the Holiday Season. And, hear I am stopping by to say Hi and to wish you a Merry Christmas once again sincerely from my heart. Loving each moment I found comforting here on the soup. Thank you for any comment or support you have offered now or in the past. Love always & forever ~ PD

    Words can never express the pain of loss. But this one is powerful, well written.

    Oh, so sad David, the expression of your loss is wonderful and the story would touch anyone's heart.

    I have written about a little six year old who lost his daddy. I think I called it "What Do you Tell A Child of Six?" A vulnerable age. I'm sorry if this is a true story. Love, Joyce

    wow! David, I can actually see the poem vividly. gees! I think this is the first time i have seen your name on the soup. & I want to read more. I'm so impressed with the flow here. It is a very sad image, & U did very well in making it flow through your poetry. I just can stop the goosebumps.. from the torture 1 has 2 endure. And the violence that comes within. I think self defense results can hurt a lot of people.. And kids when they are involved. David, hope its not your 6 year old memory.
