He stands in the shadows, high and away.
They ask, "Can you see him?"
Yes, I say
In my eight year old's voice,
Though the words fall falsely from my sad lips.
Stolen from me in his youth.
He lingers with me forever.
I have sought him out in every friend and lover.
His unconditional love never to be found.
A wonder woman has guided me.
Your lost love can be found inside yourself.
Embrace the little girl he loved so much.
Seek her out from within and shower her
With everything she craves.
You are your own answer.
