A year ago, my eyes were opened to your distress
I saw a you I’d never seen before-
Lost, alone, bereft,
The light gone from your eyes.
And I could not reach you – no matter how I pled
A year ago, I saw your path
And fell to my knees begging God –
To shine the light on you
To lead you out
To show you truth
To save you.
Three times you fell
And struggled back.
And then you left.
I never heard your voice again.
Oh my son,
I weep because I will never see your face again.
I weep for the end.
I weep for the day when I will see you once more.
And know that you are safe.
And I will weep no more.
