the dark night

The silence of the night
shattered by a scream...
bewildered
concerned
A spectator looks relentlessly
To offer safety,
protection
safe-keeping....
Sadly..
his attempt was futile..
conquered by the darkness and a deep feeling of apprehension.
He begins hes trek home
feeling uneasy about what is to come.
The Sky Begins to Weep As he continues home,
unknowing about his future, Fearing what is to come,
Braceing himself for what he does not know.
he asks himself
how can i fear what i do not know?
His thoughts are interupped as he sees a figure on the ground...
he Sprints hopeing for the best as he fears the worst,
He Drops To His Knees And Weeps With The Sky,
It Seems As The Heavens Themselfs Know His Pain..
He Wispers To The Lifeless Body.
I Love You....
...Dad
