I watch from my window
standing on a chair
looking out at the car as it pulls
onto the road
and in the drivers seat you are
there.

The back seat has all your things
and from the look on your face I
can see what this means.

I run up the stairs to your room
and there on your dresser is your
ring.
I take one look at her in the
hallway and see the tears this
brings.

Sis sits on the steps holding a
doll, like its a real baby.
I ask myself could this just be a
dream
and an answer comes from my heart
that says "maybe".

In the yard I see little Mike
running after the car.
He collapses in the road,
his heart torn and already I can
see the scar.

I hear her voice crying
"what have I done that you won't
tell the world you are mine.
are you ashamed to show them I
share your name???"

One day you made a promise
to stand beside her forever
to love her and to guide her
and now I see that it is all gone,
everything...
your clothes,
your books,
your favorite things,
and worst of all...
our family!!!!!

The only thing left behind is four
small children
and a picture of us in a frame.

The one I had made you for Father's Day.

And in the picture I see
mom, sis,the baby, little Mike and
me.

There is a hole in the place where you used to be .....

what a sad poem, along with sad reality. You did a great job expressing the pain.

So well expressed, I could feel the bewilderment and sadness.
