Her husband passed away so suddenly she pastes a smile on her face ... heartache is kept inside Three young children miss their daddy so much, she tries to make fun filled days ... life just has to go on When she is all alone in the evening she sobs into her pillow, and cries herself to sleep Pick A Title, Vol 11 – Kimo (3 Stanzas) - Poetry Contest 4. Undercurrent of Melancholy Sponsored by Edward Ibeh 10,7,6 checked with how many syllables 11/7/19
