A SAD POEM

 

This poem is based on an incident I cannot forget.

Grandpa, while on a cruise ship held his granddaughter

on the edge of a window looking out on the ocean.

The eighteen-month old child struggled and grandpa

lost his grip. And the child plummeted.

I cannot imagine what the remainder of the cruise

Was like for this family,

Guilt, sorrow and the hate, all these emotions

generated on a relaxing vacation.

I cannot imagine the thoughts this child had

as she fell, sure there was safety waiting for her.

 

 

THE THOUGHTS OF A CHILD

 

The child’s thoughts

Falling,

Sure welcoming arms

Awaited her,

The child’s thoughts,

The mystery of this event,

Too young

To make this lonely journey,

Waiting for safety

As you fall

 

Into the sea,

Into the abyss

To which we all must journey.
