Sudden Rain

Sudden Rain

A Poem by David Darabian
"

To the parents of the young victims in the many pointless wars around the globe

"
When on a warm Summer's day there is sudden rain,
I think of all the grief, of all the pain
And my eyes water
I taught you how to read and how to write
When to run and when to fight
You made me proud, you made me mad
I made you happy and sometimes sad
I was your father

When thunder rumble I think of your last days
Scared and trapped in a unknown maze
And my eyes water
You were drafted but a boy
No more smiling, no more joy
Act fast, they said, don't think
Gook, Jap, Kraut or Chink!
I was your father

What have I now but countless tears
The aching heart that no longer cares
For my life was lost too
It was lost when we lost you

Wow. This is very sad and beautiful at the same time; a dark beauty. I feel for any parent who loses a child, rather it be from wartime, crime, misunderstandings or miscarriage. The latter is one I know well. You have a talented way to use words to paint a picture. I look forward to reading more of you.
