Ah! The child's mind speaks out-
Questioning what it's about,
Speaking, asking, seeking still.
Ah! The child's eyes are bright
Gleaming in the dead of night-
Calling out in fear for help
Ah! The child's arm is sore.
It is throbbing more and more.
Seeking comforting and peace
To be left-
Ah! Hear the child's cry.
What does it mean to live and die?
The soul is reaching for the light
Ah! The child's tears flow down
Why does Mummy, Daddy frown?
Slow distortion of a soul
