Never Looked back!

She never looked back on leaving the house

ten years older her hair grey

wore the same clothes as the day she arrived

eyes now cold and empty

also carrying the same battered brown suitcase

mascara ran down her tearful face!

 

Early before the light strolled into the distance

later neighbours reported hearing

raised voices in the evening and during the night

but nothing to indicate the scene

stating nothing unusual they were an odd pair

but for each other appeared to care!

 

No witnesses came forward who saw her leave

walking away upon that fateful day

no idea who she was nor what happened here

only the cries of his mother

discovering the body of her beloved perfect son

knife in his chest the foul deed done!

 

A detailed search and forensic examination followed

but there was never proof

of her identity no DNA fluid samples or fingerprints

were ever matched to a human

it seemed as though the woman had never existed

to this day the gossip persisted!

 

Who was she and where from still unanswered!

Tearful Parting!

In her tear filled eyes it could be seen

the anxiety of his parting.

Overwhelming this she couldn’t hide

a future without him foreseen!

To both visible emotion building inside

that neither could hide!

 

In his uniform no prouder wife around

preparing to part with his unit.

A six month tour fraught with danger

not alone in these fears!

With that one last farewell tender kiss

they could never miss.

 

This was his third tour would the  luck last

each harder to accept.

That nagging thought would he come back

yet he wanted to go!.

With great composure the children waved

any bad thoughts he staved!

 

It hurt that last wave and tearful parting

from this mission didn’t return!

They knew but words couldn’t express

remembering that last caress.

 

The family was reunited once more

when he was carried home!
