A dark one but not as bad as it sounds. It is a reminder that children are with us for a brief time before they are no longer children.

Where Did All The Children Go?

Where did all the children go
That played in hail and played in snow
That played in sun and played in rain
Now never to be seen again?

I hear their cries but not their screams
For they were taken in their dreams
Where once were legion now they're none
Unspoken innocence has gone

Into the darkness do not speak
Their bones to break as hearts are weak
And soon the coffins will be filled
As on the ground their blood is spilled

Anguished cries when hands are wrung
And then their weeping song is sung
To hail their memory rue their fate
We could do nought we were too late

But still we wonder where they've gone
And just who took our little ones
That used to look to us in fear
Now all that's left are hollow tears

Stinging. One of my greatest weaknesses recognizes that it is others' too. Delivered with grace and brute truth, received with sad reverence. Thank you. ~~ Diana
