Taylor!

She walked down the quiet lane

witnesses told the police

smiling and singing as always

everybody knew Taylor

a local lass well-known there

always a word to share!

 

A regular journey to see gran

who lived on a farm

at the end of old tinkers lane

gran waited as usual

never reached her destination

causing fear and frustration!

 

As afternoon became evening

the family gathered

police called a search began

by her many friends

neighbours joined in as well

but soon darkness fell!

 

The days became many weeks

no explanation found

mentioned she was eighteen

an adult not a child

to her parents their baby still

a void nothing could fill!

 

Hope faded worst synopsis feared

no suspects or motive

within this tight nit community

rumours then emerged

that strange clouds were seen

and a friend saw the teen!

 

Only for seconds then vanished

put it down to a mistake

caught in the emotional wave

forgot to mention it

but news outlets had moved on

the interest value gone!

 

Two months later she returned

Taylor came home

as her brother and sister strolled

into their kitchen

one Friday after being at school

quietly sitting on a stool!

 

Mum was crying emotionally to

she looked over smiling

that unique reassuring glance

as if nothing was wrong

ending up hugging each other

mum sisters and brother!

 

Eagerly asking the one question

where had she been

yet Taylor could not answer this

thought it the same day

of missing time no recollection

of anything wrong rejection!

 

The journey to the truth compelling!
