Had seen this over on Google plus…with so many stories in the world, this has to be one of the saddest.


It happens more than I would like to admit but some stories punch me right in the heart and it takes a bit of time to get it to beat again. By now everyone has seen the viral video of the dad singing Blackbird to his son (who died shortly after his mother did). I want more than anything to help take away the pain this man must feel having lost his wife and son.  If his son could comfort his dad what would he say???  I know I am more suited for the darker side of emotions but this story is dark enough without me spilling my empathetic emotions all over the place.

I wrote this for THE REVERIE prompt which asks us to use a current headline to write a poem.

(You still have time to write for the prompt and be part of a community vote.)
