Someday Never Comes - Poem by Arsiema Berhane

You said -
'Some day,
Your dad will come home,
There'll be no more tears,
No more fears
Of tomorrow.

Some day,
You won't feel hungry,
A bright tomorrow your dad will bring,
You'll find it some day, some morning when you wake.

Some day,
Things will not be the same,
You'll see that life is fun, a game
And all those nightmares that you have now
Will melt away like snow in the sun.

Some day,
Those long dark days,
Those creepy nights
Will be no more
And the sun shall rise.

Some day,
It won't be only me and you;
That photo on the wall of just us two
Some day when your dad comes
Will show his portrait too'.

Life is getting harder though,
It worsens every day,
I can't be sure our life will change,
Some day seems to run away.

500 some days now have come,
500 some days gone
Yet still it is
Just me and you, alone.

    This moved me to tears, although you say 'There'll be no more tears.'

    I must confess, fear grips me when I read of events in the Horn of Africa. Perhaps, perhaps I might not have noticed the news from this part of the world - except that I worried about you. I hope that Eritrea, and its citizens, may weather the storm.

    Love, - Will

    i was never told he'd come home-we were not aloud to speak of our dad. at least this still leaves hope...until the truth is realized. (Report) Reply
