Where are you? I'm scared.
Where are you? I'm Scared.

     Where are you going?  I'm scared.  I'm all alone.  What will happen to me?  Daddy is away.  Who will take care of us?  Aunty is nice, but it's not the same as you.  When will you come back?  I don't feel safe.  My stomach hurts.  I'm so scared.  Please, don't leave.  Where are you going?  We're so little, who will take care of us?  "Bye, mommy!"  Okay, I'll wait.  They aren't telling us anything.  Why does she have to leave us?  She's sick.  She's so sick.  I'm so scared.  Why can't Daddy come home?  He's so far away.  I miss him.  Why won't they tell us anything? 
     Her face is so unhappy.  What's wrong?  Why won't you tell us anything?  I have to be a big girl.  I have to take care of my brothers.  I just want someone to hold me.

Synopsis
This is written from the eyes and mind of a 6-year old waiting for her mommy to come back from the hospital.
A Word from the Writer
As a child, my dad was in the military and stationed away most of the year. My mom was always sick and having operations. She's had 38 operations, survived cancer 4 times and almost died on the operating table 3 times. These memories and imaginings colored my whole life from the man I married to my livelihood to my hate and fear of doctors and hospitals.
