Maybe when :: New Zealand Sonnet

Despite my requesting to both of you to travel along with you in our car, Dad, you didn't agree to take; Mom you too just smiled, didn't pursue, left me in despair. 'twas last time seen you both, felt you didn't care for left me in house alone, don't know what for. Think once more have you done justice to me; With your decision I could not agree. Dad, you may feel, I've acquired skills to be alone, have maturity but you're wrong. Though closed windows, doors but I am not free from fear; certainly I am not that strong. Maybe when you return, I won't be in normal state; surely to fear is no sin? ~X~X~X~

Ah, poignantly expressed. Sometimes parents think their children are mature enough to "handle" being alone, not realizing how afraid they are about it.
