Love And Loss – Promote Yourself

She stood in the cold waiting 
As usual, for her mother to open the door 
Awaiting her smile and greeting
When she noticed blood on the floor 

In absolute fear, she searched for her key
Opened the door and rushed in 
Dreading what she would see
Yet not letting the fear win

She couldn’t think of them in their last moments, pleading 
Smothering her feelings, she climbed the stairs… and froze.
For before her lay her mother, bleeding 
Few inches away from her father- adding to her woes 

She stood there, with a fixed gaze 
The people she loved the most, murdered 
Everything seemed in a haze
As to despair, she surrendered 

She shook them, carelessly 
Knowing her attempts were in vain
Ended up crying her heart out hopelessly 
She couldn’t bear the pain 

Even after several years, she couldn’t love again 
She saw the murderer dead
But, she couldn’t ward off the pain
Or help herself when she’d be hopelessly sad
She learned the meaning of loss and love
As a part of her died that day 
Every day she searched them up above 
And, for them she would pray
