One Last Goodbye

We was only 3
You walked into the room
With your golden blonde hair
Sparkling from the open window
You tucked us in for our nap
I leaned down
To say goodbye
you told me
"Take care of your brother and sister
And you'll be back"
Well time has past
that back never came
I wonder to this day
Whatever had happened
It has been 19 years now
Since you told me
"You'll be back"
I didn't know that day
Would be
The Last Goodbye
Inspired by
Danielle’s contest

    How sad it is when a parent promises to return and never does. I think you have a winner for Danielle's contest with this excellent write! Love, Carolyn

    Heartfelt and poignant Justin, it is sad that the clock keeps on ticking and you still have no answer. Best of luck in the contest...Raul
