Nothing has been changed.
Everything is in its place.
No one enters there.
It's considered sacred space.

On a child's bed
is a ragged teddy bear.
Solemn...grief-filled silence
fills the air.

Sometimes at night
he creeps to the door.
He peers in the room
and paces the floor.

But he never enters
the sacred tomb
that used to be
his daughter's room.

TennesseeAngel~
This is very tender and touching.
Too many memories for some to face.
Sorrow sleeps in the heart of a
father without his child.

Good writing.

a tragic poem excellently written.

Then work came and made us free
What price now for a shallow piece of dignity"
Nicky Wire, A design for Life.

"Rock 'n' roll is our epiphany
Culture, alienation, boredom and despair"

"To be nobody-but-yourself-in a world which is doing its best night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting."

Tennesee Angel...

You make me think with your poems. Sad thoughts of losing someone special...


"But he never enters
the sacred tomb
that used to be
his daughter's room."

Loved this part, it just strings it all together...

loved the read of this...

-nando-


 Ask me how to live your life, and this to you IŽll say: make your choises true and wise, so that when tomorrow will arise, youŽll smile at yesterday...

Netswan --  Thank you for taking the time to read my poem.

Marge --  A father without is child is truly a sad thing to witness.  Thanks for your kind comments.

Brian --  Thank you so much!

nando --  That is one of my personal goals in everything I write.  I want a reader to have to think and read twice.  I love when the reader ponders and attempts to figure out what the poet was thinking.  Thank you for reading!

Corrine --  Thank you!  Praise is always best when it comes from other poets.

Jessica --  I'm glad that you enjoyed it.
