The Boy I Will Never Know

When the night is dark and the moon is bright
I see the outline of one young boy
or am I just imagining his sight
his footsteps are louder and he grows closer

As he appears my senses grow crisper
The face of a young boy appears tears in his eyes
the need to comfort him brings me a step closer
and him one step back

Our eyes meet for on e swift moment
he turns his head and walks away
to wherever he needs to go
and I whisper goodbye to the boy I will never know

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not pray for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it.
