In this strange city



He did not turn up
Tears drizzled down her face
Her heart was broken

She was left alone
After he had agreed to meet
In this strange city

Ripe for adventure
This was no a birthday treat
But danger itself

She was far from home
Jetsam washed on a strange shore
Line of safety gone

Fear sprouts in her mind
Who was silhouetted there?
Thank heavens, it’s Dad

  2. A dad by a strange twist of fate will appear at the right time at a most critical moment. It happens sometimes!
