Writing Prompt – By the dark of dawn

Mom left home just before dawn,
dad left later after dropping me to school.
I went to after care and then home just before dinner.
I do not know when mom came home from work
dad was the parent I saw.
Then one day I was told dad needed a surgery
to help his ailing liver,
He went away to the hospital,
while I shunted from house to house
in need of before and after school care
and sometimes for the night too.
Now my friends shun me,
as I am always looking for company
I have nothing to give
but a promise that this is just the dark of dawn
and very soon light will brighten my world too.
