The Small Girl Felt a Rush. .and did so out of Her Room,
She Stopped in Her Tracks Once She saw Her at a Distance,
By the Front Door, and with the Fearful Tone Her Father
Had Only Minutes Past. .
She Questioned Her of Where She was going.
This Caused a Tear to Fall from Her Mother’s Eyes. .
Hearing such Fear in Her Daughter’s Voice,
Though She would Cease them as much as She could Bear. .
And with the Truth She has Always Told Her of,
She would say that She was Sick Today,
The One’s who Knew how to Mend were Awaiting on Her Arrival. .
So it was a must that Her Father Stay Home with Her Tonight.
She Lead closer to where Her Mother was.
At the Sight of this, She Lowered Herself onto Her Knees
The Moment before Her Daughter Embraced Her. .Not Letting go.
She would Say it was Unsafe to go Alone,
Although She Insisted that She would be Fine.
The Small Girl Believed in Her. .but with One Last Request. .
She Wished for Her to Promise that She will be back by Dawn.
Her Father would watch them from a Distance.
She Lost Rein in on Her Tears now. .Even so,
She Held to that Promise. . Devoid of any Doubt,
From the Great Hope Her Daughter Bestowed Her with. .
She Glanced Once more at Her. .Followed by Her Father.
Then Slowly Breaking their Embrace. .with no Desire to.
She Turned away. .Passing through the Door. .
Disappearing Within the Twilight Rain.
The Small Girl Stood in that Place,
Where they watched Her Depart. .
She Felt Her Father. .Whisper these Strong Words to Her. .
Telling Her that He will make sure all would be okay,
Despite what this Journey had Created for them.
Knowing that He would Never Cease to Tell Her of this,
She would Say to Him in Return. .
That She would be back by Sunrise. .As She Promised.
Her Father Held onto Her. .without another Word.
In Time that Felt of Days on No End,
The Small Girl Awoke by the Sound of a Phone’s Call. .
And Ambled out of Her Room, Expecting to See Her Mother. .
Alongside Her Father. .But the Only Figure She saw
Was of Him. .with the Phone Placed Down on His lap,
In Unwanted Distraught, All the more the Moment
He saw His Daughter there. .
Staring His Way. .Waiting for Him to Speak. .
But Instead. .There was a Shuddering Silence. .
Her Mother was not there by Dawn. .
But She was Gone. .by Dawn. . . .
