life shaken out of a child,
gone with his last breath,
he lies cold on the floor
as birth gives way to death.

when his mother came in,
she barely made it through the door
when she saw her angel
lying dead on the kitchen floor.

her hands framed his face,
delicately, feeling for a beat,
finding nothing but a body,
she felt her hands retreat.

and now, as we sit among his grave,
and bask in the sun's tender loving beams,
if you listen closely on the wind,
you can just barely hear his screams.
