Frank angry from the night’s events got into the black Mercedes. Rose opening the passenger door and closing behind her.
“Well that went well didn’t it” she said. “Don’t lecture me” Frank snapped. Angrily starting the car. The car screeched away leaving tyre tracks.
Paul had been walking for a while now uttering to himself with discontent for his dad. He was soaked through from the constant rain.
“Probably gonna catch a cold now because of that idiot, Why did he have to act like that? Showing me up in front of everyone!”
“I’m gonna get home, I’m gonna get my stuff and I’m gonna leave” he shouted to the sky.

Orphaned little boy
Crying, wailing with distraught
Mother in his arms
Poem taking directly from my book “Rhyming poetry to change your day” I hope yours is good, come what may.
I miss you so much
It feels like yesterday
Years have passed by
All along the way
It happened so quickly
In not even a year
You were taken from me
My biggest fear
I dream of seeing you
Hugging you tight
Holding you in my arms
Smiling with delight
Talking to you just once
To say what I had to say
“Dad I miss you, I love you”
I always will, come what may
Many years have passed
Even now it makes me cry
Remembering like it was yesterday
I never got to say goodbye
One of my all time favourite poems
