A River Lost

By Storm December

Disclaimer: This is MINE do NOT use without MY permission!

A River islost in a forest, of buildings and lights

And he can't be seen, in the black of the night

---

People call, but he cannot hear

As he sits and waits, for an answered prayer

---

Deeper he falls and the city achieves

What it sought after from the moment he came

---

But who will save the River, in the forest so deep

Of branches and limbs and leaves and trees

---

Many have tried, but no one can save

The little boy whose face, fades away inside the man

---

So I sit and watch, as the story unfolds

On the television screen, inside my room

---

Many have forgotten the boy, lost in the forest

Who's crying inside, scared and alone

---

But many have not, who tried to save him

But it's hard to save someone, with so much pain

---

And now to all, it's very clear

That you can't save someone, from them selves
