I sit alone

I sit quietly

Nothing is moving

And tha darkness

Is now drawing in

I am just a child

And I feel so alone

How could this

Not be frightening

I remember my dad telling me

How my mum got too ill

And sadly god took her

And now she is in heaven

He told me don’t be sad

She’s up there preparing

A place for us

He told me

That for me

She had so much love

But I do not understand

Why dad says do not be sad

Why he cries himself to sleep

Why he cannot talk to me

I know I am just a child

And I can’t hope to comprehend

But my dad is hanging silent

From the ceiling by the bed

Why did he it was OK to leave me

Alone in the dark

Did he not understand the selfish part

Of leaving me to join mum

Because of the pain

And to leaving suffering

Throughout my life again and again.
