Just Another Day

by SweetDreamer   Jan 23, 2005

It was just another day,
I was at school to learn and play,
then the buses arrived and the clock struck 3,
I was happy to be going home,
but I had no clue what was waiting for me,

the ride seemed slow, even though it was fast,
I sat in my seat, out the window houses flew past,
the bus began to slow, my house wasn't very far,
then I spotted a person, standing beside a familiar blue car,
I thought *maybe moms gonna take me for a treat or to the mall*,
soon I would know, I wasn't right, no, not at all,

there wasn't just my mom, there was a couple other relatives too,
mom said she was so sick, she couldn't stand the pain she was going through,
tears streamed from her eyes, they came from mine as well,
How could I have known she was so down? By her face you couldn't tell,

they said they were taking my mother to a place where she could be *helped*, but I still couldn't understand,
my father stood beside me, and took me by the hand,
he told me to be strong and try not to cry,
that this wasn't for forever, this was not my mother's last good-bye,
she told us how much love for us she had,
I asked her why she was leaving me, why would she want to make me so sad?
my dad and I stood together as she got into the car,
I didn't know when I'd have my family back, but I knew it would be far

It was just another day,
until my mother went away...

Even though it may not be the best poem, it was a very personal time in my life, and it means a lot.
