Having witnessed separated couples giving miseries to their lovely and innocent chidren, I wrote this poem

He tried hard not to break away But could not keep them together After all, he would never again stay So he left in search of life better Like scattered leaves after a storm Was the root of family foundation Aching high hearts were born To play their games of destruction Their home became colorless rainbow Dad said he wouldn't return again So with meager hope for tomorrow They sat on a beach without sand Do innocent offsprings deserve it Trust on parents like flowerless spring Why did their happiness now quit Their favorite song they do not sing Alone, the boy and the girl must cope Plant new seeds of peacefull living Even in hard times they hope For any other joyful yearning I pray that others do not taste What the children went through With no support worse they faced Struggling to come up with food They deserted school and worked She as cleaner, he as errand boy Helped sick mother who lost her word And on Christmas they got no toy Victims of such sudden violence Saddened with snatched love and care At such tender age they lost guidance And grew for life only total scare
