Gold Star - 12,168 Points (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Branches


Wondering what this afternoon will bring, hanging from
branches within my mind.

Swinging to and fro, gradually trying to attain some
peace inside.

Feeling somewhat like a child playing, yet in my heart
knowing the adult inside may soon be crying.

Wondering what this afternoon will bring, hanging on
the edge of Dad's imminent eternity.
