Exasperated phone call

Thrown from your weekend rest

It discombobulates your thoughts.

A shiver runs through your body

As your eyes try to refocus.

The words confuse and frustrate

While you simply sit and listen.

How do you continue

When the news shatters your soul.

Demeanours change

And when you look up

The eyes of the child are wet.
