Nightmare

You disappear,
You run away,
But you say your okay.
 
To us,
Your mother, father, friends,
We have lost
you.
 
We try and convince each other,
That there was nothing we could do,
While putting on a brave face,
While not believing any of the words.
 
Surely there was something we could do.
Listen more. Ask more questions.
Anything at all,
Even predicting the future.
 
You lost yourself,
But it was our job,
to get you back to the real you.
To avoid this nightmare.
 
But this nightmare we must face.
We can’t change the past, all we can do is hope,
That when you find yourself,
You will come back to us.

    A fantastic poem about another true nightmare that is taking place in our country as we speak. #PrayersforOklahoma
