Little One

She took you away
Not one year on this earth
You never learnt to speak
Smiled from birth

A dark stormy night
From then you were no more
In hate you were taken
Our hearts sore

Gone now little one?
And you left us so young
It was not you I know
No life clung

Where are you my boy?
Not yet twelve months old
I know it won't be hell
Pain enfolds

Your life gone 
Before it had begun
Never will we forget
Little one

    I feel your pain, dear Mandy. Reminds me of the day I heard of my brother's death on the radio driving home from a day at the beach. Jake

    I read the pain in your tragic piece, Mandy. Our world is a cruel one. Good luck in the contest with this gem, my friend. Licia :-)
