The Loss of a Loved One
I awake, startled by the light of the lights
Dave, standing there beside me
“Wake up; He’s serious;
Close the door behind us”
You can’t leave me here, clueless!
One look at mama and I knew he’s gone.
Or on his way
“We shall let u know”
And they, through the door
Gathering all sorts of roses,
Prayers, pleas, tears!
