A childs face,
It shines!
Watching from the shadows of
The corners of my mind.

A different place.
Drowning in the tides of passing time.

Laughter gone
To Burning tears.
With no one left to dry the face they're on.
Does anybody care?

Time moves on
And pain fades into numbness over years.

Growing strong,
And growing old.
Releasing all that once was held in bond
And shaking free from cold.

Another child.
One that learns to laugh and love and hold.
