Lost Children



sometimes, in my dreams,

i see them and hear them –

the little lost children

i’ve known – and been


children with little chance

of ever truly

changing their circumstance

doomed to trudge on alone


their faces haunt me

their tears bring me

to my knees, sometimes –

in silent, but fervent,  prayer


that their lives will get better

that the Lord will hold them

in the palm of his hand – and

comfort them, protect them, forever


i hear them whimpering –

see them hiding, simpering,

arms across their faces

to deflect life’s cruel blows


how do i help them?
