I Waited and Waited

Just like a child
I kept myself
where you told me
to hide...

quiet.. trembling...

where are you?
are you still coming?

or do i need to get out,
and be brave
to face it all
all by myself...

on a different note,
I am offering this day of silence for the soul of Mark Jr.

This morning we received a call which is very unusual. this family are too busy in the morning that tey don't want to disturb each other. but this call is unending, so my boss picked it up. it was her sister-in-law telling her that there was an accident in the farm. and that's it...

May he rest in peace in the Comfort of the Care of the Almighty...


  1. Pare JJ,
    A poignant anecdote tinged with a little sadness on the demise of a loved one. May he rest in peace.


  2. Dear JJ: This poem makes me so sad; I just want to hug the child. Jane Jones Chiccoreal
