Lost Boy …
A child lost and hopeless in a dream
he could not bear to hear the scream
of his mother’s fear by a man unhinged
alcohol and demons filled he brings.
Forsaken but not taken, sorrow
filled his soul and all his tomorrows,
he felt alone, through darkest nights,
filled with fear, of mother’s plight.
Depths of scary shadows, frozen still
afraid to awaken, sweating his fill
from the dirty streets to mountain high
a peace came over him with a deep sigh.
Like an eagle flying full, his vision centered
this life a boy of deep sorrow entered
casting demons, ghosts and anger far away.
He wanted love, and mother to stay
tears could not stop flowing, as death
took hold, and the final blow was met.
She died in his arms, as angels plucked
her soul and left him, now alone a boy,
lost in himself and forever destroyed.
