Father's Lament

When will Mommy come home?
She asks, eyes twinkling like
Starlets of night
Never
He says, two gruff hands grip the
Steering wheel tight
Mommy's not coming back?
She asks, fervent tears racing
Down her soft cheek
Never
He says, faulty voice makes it
Harder to speak
Does that mean Mommy's gone?
She asks, lips trembling in
Subtle resent
Never
He says, and he hugs her in
Father's lament
