In the Dead of Night

<a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/disrupt/”>Disrupt</a&gt;

In the dead of night, I sleep

After a busy, fractured day

Exhausted beyond all comprehension, I awake suddenly

The incessant ringing disrupts my peaceful slumber

“Hello” my groggy husband says, “Yes, this is”

“What! Where? When, he yells frantically

Unable to speak, I only stare with mouth agape

He responds to the unknown caller and turns

“It’s our son. We must go!”

Those unwelcome words pierce my heart

Knowing the dread that I feel

Yet not knowing the extent of its cause

I arise and join my husband

To hold our precious, child-like son

One…

Last…

Time.
