MOMENT OF SADNESS
It was 6AM in the morning, when the shrill ring of the phone
startled me with its jarring intrusive sound.
“Hello Aunt, it is Dawn, and I am afraid I have something very sad to tell you;
Daddy died last night of a sudden heart attach.”
There was a screaming inside my head for what seemed like the longest
minute of my life, before I realized it was my own voice echoing a death
knell in expression of a pain that filled every cell in my body.
