Scared Finally




Fearless, screaming out,
"You've taken everyone from me!
What could frighten me now?"
Laughing at my boldness,
You answered with two children.
Never felt so much happiness
mixed with the terror of loss.

  2. Something happening to our children is a big fear. So scary to love someone that much :)

  4. Yes, the most frightening thing of all. To have someone(s) you love so entirely, and having the fear of losing them.

    1. Thank you. I feel like losing my immediate family was rock bottom, but then I had two beautiful daughters to fill my heart with love.
