For Sian

An innocent child

  sensible, beautiful

Cruelly taken

  your life ended

  unfairly, tragically, awfully

My sorrow is great

Your fate a reminder

  of my fears for the future

  for my innocents

I am so sorry

***

I won’t be categorising this with my other poems.  I just needed to write it.  My thoughts and sympathies go out to Sian’s family and friends.  We live in scary times.  Some life events hit us harder than others, and I can’t make sense of this one.
