Tragedy


November 16,2009
Monday, at the time
We were in school -
My Dad died.
A short time with us.
We not really knew him so much.

He was in car accident
And he ended in a ditch
as the fire burned his body.
We think that he fell a sleep
and ended up in the ditch
and died from the fumes.

We were at school
and my mom at work.
We were waiting for him
to pick us up at school.
But he didn't show up
And we called our grandma
to pick us up at school.

When our uncle came
to tell the news
that our dad died
We were shocked…

Mom came home
And she looked around,
She knew something was wrong
Because all the cars in drive way
And my dad's car wasn't there.
And she went inside of the house
My grandma told her the news -
What had happened to our dad.

Funeral came to remember him
And all our family came,
My dad and moms friends and co-workers
And friends at school
to comfort us.

November 16,2009
Monday, at the time
we were in school -
my Dad died.
A short time with us.
We not really knew him so much.

November 21,2009
We laid him to rest.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
