A Farewell To The Lad

Breath in
Breath out

A strike of thunder
People running about
The sun is gone
The night has fallen
The tears I bled
At last are fed
To a land
In thirst for freedom

Breath in
Breath out
Children are screaming around
Toys scattered on the ground
A head over here
A plastic arm there
Again
Handicapped
Everyone has become

Breath in
Breath out
Everybody panting

A little boy
Parentless
For loving the place
Where through a mirror
He first saw his face
It was a last glance
That he took
Through his white-framed window
At the world

A breath in
A breath out

Yet this time
Was his last
