What Can Happen In A Normal Day
Author: Dean Morris


I wake up to a bright and shinny new day
i have drool all over my pillow
i hope it will wash away
my eyes are still half way closed
i sat down only for a second
and away i dosed
i re awoke only a short time after
just after fixing my hair
which is now a disaster
i take off these dirty old pajamas
mix a bowl of cereal
cut up and threw in some bananas
i pour myself a glass of milk
while i clean up the mess i made
with my cloth that is made of silk
as i sit down my wife walks in the kitchen
shes says good morning to me
i ask her what shes fixing
she sits down beside me, reads the newspaper
shes asks me were is Lucy
hold on ill go wake her
as I'm walking up the steps i notice her door is already open
i walk into her room
what i saw got my heart mixed with emotion
her bed was empty she wasn't anywhere in sight
quick honey get up here
while your at it turn on the light
we search the entire house together she is no where in sight
that is when i begin praying
that everything is going to be alright
honey what the hell is going on
where is our daughter
something has gone terribly wrong
OK Lucy this is isn't funny
please come out of hiding
or else I'm taking your away your bunny
still no reply i begin to panic
my wife is crying and screaming
and i cant stand it
i pick up the phone and dial 911
I'm asked what the situation is
i ask immediately for a police car to come
my daughter has been kidnapped right under our feet
it happened over night
while my wife and i were asleep
we awoke and noticed her door was already open
we don't know what to do
we are praying and were hoppen
that you can help us out in finding our daughter
we would greatly appreciate it
if we lose her now, out hearts will grow dark and darker
i hang up to see my wife on the floor crying
she is breathing heavily
sounds as if she is dying
i run over to her, she is having a panic attack
she is rolling over the floor
shes now sprawled out on her back
i turn her over she is out of control
tears are running down the side of my face
first my daughter now my wife, this is taking a toll
i redial 911
at this point I'm yelling and screaming
for an ambulance to come
i can hear the sirens coming of in the distance
my whole world is flashing in front of me
this very instant
the ambulance arrives in front of my house
they bring in the stretcher
and put it on the couch
they try and help her there on the spot
nothing is working
I'm crying and praying for all of this pain and suffering to stop
all of the sudden i got dizzy and just fell to the floor
i never re awoke
i fell asleep for now and forever more
