Epic   Fantasy   Friend   Funny   Love   Main   Nature   Other   Sorrow


for Donna L. Thiel +1961

She walked under the oak tree,
crunching its acorns beneath her feet,
never to grow into a giant oak,
leaving her parents to cope

left behind her youthful years
washed away by the tears,
yeas and nays discarded by the way,
precious were those final days.

She was only eight.
Cancer took her bones.
Even a soul can’t wait
needing bones for a home.
