Lost and Found

Little Boy Lost

Count to a thousand and I'll be back for you

She said as she walked through the door

So he counted

Every day he counted

He watched

And waited

And counted

For days and weeks

He counted

For months and years

He counted

Long past a thousand

He counted

But she didn't come back for him

She'd gone

To a new life

With a new man

And a new child

And he didn't count any more.

Little Boy Found

I hear your cries my child

But I cannot see you

You strayed from my side

Too far

The night closes in

And the strange sounds scare you

The danger's now greater

By far

My hunt grows more urgent

I won't desert you

I'm closing in fast, there

You are!
