I’ve been absent from this blog for awhile, but I’m trying to get my I.C. back inside that sugar bowl again by linking this post to Saturday Centus at Jenny Matlock Off On My Tangent. I know it’s a SATURDAY Centus, but it’s taken me until Tuesday to get the lid back on the sugar bowl. Jenny gave us 100 words, plus the five word prompt: “why oh why oh why”.
DID SHE DO SOMETHING BAD?
When your child was born, on that long-ago day,
Did you love her, did you smile, were you filled with fear?
Did your heart break when you gave her away,
Or was she ripped from you while you tried to keep her near?
What could have happened when she’d turned only three?
What could have led to your child being taken?
Did she do something bad? Won’t you please now tell me,
What caused your child to be forsaken?
Please tell me why you gave your child away?
Tell me why, oh why, oh why could I not stay?
Thank you for your visit. And thank you for hosting, Jenny, and for letting me drop in with a contribution when I’m struggling to keep the lid on that sugar bowl. Laurie
