Poetry Corner: The Day You Ran Away

The Day You Ran Away

A family day out; it’s a beautiful day

The sun is shining; it’s brisk, not cold

You’re running around and laughing

That sound never gets old


We’re waiting for our table

I promise it won’t be long

I know you’re getting irritable

Please wait; please hold on


Then I hear those awful words

Those words that tell me you’re gone

No one knows where you are

You were just here; having fun!

We search everywhere for you

But you’re nowhere to be seen

Time stood still before me

I was sickened with disbelief


Finally, we found you

Laying down, playing with trains

You don’t understand why I’m crying

You don’t understand my pain
