I can't believe this.
Just yesterday we were in bliss.
Now, it is all gone.
I can't help but stare at the dawn.
I have not slept,
I can't bring myself to accept,
That just yesterday you were here.
Why did you have to disappear?
I will always remember the day.
It was a day filled with dismay.
I remember waking you from your bed,
Not knowing by the day's end, you would be dead.
I got you your usual breakfast of Cinnamon Toast Crunch,
and made sure I had packed your lunch.
I waved as you rushed out of the house,
You were dressed in jeans and a small blouse.
I never thought that would be the last time I saw you.
My heart rate flew.
I watched the TV as your school was attacked.
The whole incident was so abstract.
We were called and told where I could get you.
When I arrived, I knew something was askew.
Hours I seemed to have stood.
It was not long before I understood.
You were gone.
I drove home, nothing more than a pawn.
I could not bring myself to accept it.
I could not bring myself to admit.
On my bed I curled.
Wondering why you were taken from this world.
Tears streamed my face,
I felt as if I was floating in space.
As my heart shattered.
The one who pulled the trigger, I can't help but despise,
As I struggle to choke back my cries.
In just one moment,
my entire world was broken.
