A Child Lost

Some years back a story broke in the national news headlines about a little girl that had gone missing. At first it was thought that she may have wandered off with friends when playing outside of her house on her bicycle but after some time it was clear that she had been abducted and murdered. Heartbreakingly, the child knew her abductor and it is believed that she may have gone willingly with him. So very sad…

I awoke early on the morning after the child had been found, heartbroken for the unknown family and mourning on mass with millions… I felt compelled to write a poem.

 In a second gone 
all alone place unknown
that moment in time tracks changed
moved on.
Unrest
despair
not here
nor there
no trace
no trail
the toil
recoil.
Exhausted
confusion
depleted emotions
shattered
withdrawal
immersion in sorrow.
Crowds praying
hearts pleading
a nation united
same nation weeping
searching, searching.
Precious child returns to her ‘Source’
arms embracing gentle dancing.
In a second gone now spirit reunited.
A mother weeps
her life
torn
a soul
reborn.
