Cold winds on a fall morning

blowing winds against the steel vehicle

the beat up, baby blue minivan

protecting all inside


a small, frail fifth-grader

ecstatic to begin her day at school

A parked car in a ten-year-old parking lot

eroded by the rubber tires

cracks in the cement

yellow paint lines faded

Still holding the feeling of excitement

the girl readied her backpack

and began to depart

Words escaped her mother’s mouth

It should’ve pained her

but only brought confusion to heart

she was unable to comprehend the situation

The girl showed feelings of sadness

but they were never truly in attendance

Her age limited her ability to fathom

Years passed

and she felt the pain

The pain that failed to exist

years before

She yearned to hear his goofy laugh

She wished to see

his peach fuzz head

She did not show enough


When he was on the earth

She learned her lesson

and now cherishes all

who deserve to be cherished

-Uncle Fred

Rataplan: Spelling and grammar are a bit dodgy at times, there's a few distracting continuity mistakes, and not all plot points are resolved: I say you need an editor.
