Taken, never Forsaken

When I try to look back, it hurts to start A mother I was now in continual broken heart In the innocence of that Sunday quietly shopping away When my thoughts to humanity go in angered astray One minute he held my hand, the next he was gone In suspended silence I float amidst stared public throng Questions through confusion as to where I stood last Still feeling his hand, that loving maternal grasp Lights became brighter, louder were the voices Still confusion abounds in sporadic lost choices Who could have taken him, where has he gone So many voices not singing the same song Continually I dream about these words you've just read To the end of my days I can't think of him dead <*>

    a very sad poem. How happy turned sorrow as fast as blink of an eye. well penned and really deep. thanks for visiting my page, James. I thought what you wrote for Coleen is really nice and uplifting, it seemed like you've been real friends for so long. :)

    This is so sad, a small child was lost here last weekend. This describes the pain perfectly. Message me on your thoughts on how to perfect my writings. Trying to get back into it after years of not writing. Thanks for your comments.
