Sarah

With those big brown eyes
and strawberry fired hair
sweet innocence as on
a summer's day fair

You visit grandma and grandpa
with lee luke and charlotte
brothers and sister you play
have such a wonderful day

You all go play hide and go seek
all turns dark all so bleak
in a blink of an eye
you are taken away
we cannot sleep
we only weep

All turns cold there's
a chill in the air
The gentle breeze flows
through your lovely hair
we searched all day
and so many nights
such dispare

Darkness falls
Sarah's soul now
takes flight
Into the deepest
darkest night

Plucked lika a flower
blooming in the fields
Stained blood red
where poppies now yeald

Sarah now flies
like a little butterfly
She flitters here
She flitters there
her laughter fills
the air

A gentle breeze
flows through your hair
with sunlight shinning
Your big brown eyes
like diamonds shine

With fresh roasey cheeks
of natures's sweet elfin child
laughing and dancing
a heavenly delight

Forever young
this angel child
With gosama wings
of coloured silk
so light so bright

Mama,
you will feel me as on a summer's day
I will caress your sweet face
with an elfin kiss so that
you can make a wish

Sarah

Last few words:

A beautiful poem and tribute for a bright little spirit. What happened to her is appalling!

I have got to agree with Cat, but i'm angered that the person who could commit such a crime still lives, the law was made by polite men not fathers or mothers of murdered children.

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.

Hello and welcome my friend to new Neo family

I was horrified that this man had done this before and they let him out again. hopefully they will never let him out again.

so tragic this you spirit playing in the cornfields with her brothers and sister never to run free just to be

Ian it is so sad re madalaine I too blame the parents for leaving her alone but i pray that she is alive and well and being looked after.

As for sarah it is tragic that lee ran from the corn fields to the lane to see the white van pass him and the driver waving at him unknown that his sister sarah was held captive in the vehicle he saw drive away never to be see again.

always you kind words refresh me

thank you

maggie

how you have grown, poetess! your words flow, unrestricted, dark and beautiful. it is good to read you again and I admire this, for subjects such as these take a great amount of strength to write about.
we cannot sleep we only weep - these two lines have the simplicity of a nursery rhyme and yet they are so powerful in the emotion they carry.
I truly enjoyed reading this poem, Maggie.
love from here,
your Proprietress

Hello my dear friend

I have been lost in time for a while now.

I have lost all of my family now. Three generations.

I lost my twin sister in December 2020 she had heart problems
I lost my last brother in March 2021 to covid pheumonia.

I am the soul survivor now.

So maybe my creative juices can flow freely.

Miss you dear friend. i have a lot to read. and be inspired by your works.

Always
