It scared me to death!
so loud and sudden it stole my breath
I had to step away for the sake of sanity
shock set in it got the best of me
I only wanted to go home and just be done
none of this had turned out none of it was fun
I turned to the only source of comfort from such harms
tears dropping arms wrapping I fled to father’s arms
no we weren’t home yet but he was home right here
I could hold on to him even while in fear
I knew he was enough ’til it was time to leave
his presence was my peace to receive
he absorbed my fear the shock ceased to grow
and my heart found rest when he said to me “come on, it’s time to go”
