Little Blond Boy
Where have you gone?
It's been so long
Since you were here
Passing to darkness
With all the Brilliance
And all that color
That faded from your hair
But soon, too soon
That color
Which illuminated your soul
Faded into the darkest night
Some things are most precious
When they are no longer with us
When they have passed from our grasp
Never to return again
And we realize, too late
How bright that light was
Only when we find ourselves
Blinded by its absence
Diminished by its loss
Incapacitated by the pain
By the loss of a little blond boy
That we hadn't known still existed.
