No longer alone - conclusion 5 minute poem

She just upped and walked away
Taking his precious son
Now he searches day and night
Wants to bring him home

Was given a tip yesterday
On his way to check it out
Down  to Cornwall to Newquay
Tense as a coiled spring wanting to shout

Then he saw  her
Was at the school gate
Owen's Mam was waiting
In a disheveled state

He came slowly out
As though he was afraid
Then he saw his Tad
The sun went into shade

Such was the smile on Owen's face
Father and son wept as one
Looked around was no trace
Owen's mam had gone.

Conclusion to 5 minute poem  -,He walks alone

    Ouch, this one hurts down deep inside. When we were kids my mom and us three kids tried to escape my dad. He found us 2 weeks later and went too our school to pick us up. Unlike this kid we were not so happy to see him. Really well written story Seren.

    The sad poetic story is probably too common these days. Parents using their children as pawns againsr the other. A sad stae of affairs. Your poem provides the right amount of shock value for this topic.
