A green bench on the pavement…

A small head reclines over a battered old flower pot…

A homeless child with no home and no cot…

His eyes closing, lost….

Trying to will himself to another place…

His story can be read if you look closely at his face…

Painful thoughts and memories stir in his mind…

Gone is the childhood promise of joy and wonder…

A promise lost with the wind and thunder…

As he sleeps he lets himself dare to dream…

Love and freedom are what his soul seeks…

Yet his dreams are nothing but a carpet of regret…

full of pain and empty promises…

Short lived bittersweet moments…

Happiness has become his great opponent…

As the darkness of the night grows…

The cold, the fear, the hunger and the pain take hold…

Sweet innocent child whose life has been robbed…

Desperately he seeks for love and peace…

Yet the sickening truth hits his heart…

This little angel surrenders to the dark…

His desperate attitude is there…

Yet he bravely conceals the pain….

His soul aches for a hero…

Yet he hides the cry for help…

“Who would run?”…

Reality comes in crushing…

A ghost lost in an strange world…

At times seen by a kind face…

But only for a little moment then he is forgotten…

He becomes lost in their memory as if he is nothing!…

“Why am I here?” , he does not understand…

“What have I done to deserve this?”…

“What did I miss?”….

Lost to a world which would rather pretend he is non-existent….

Childhood joy always so distant…

A world too busy seeking the next best thing…

“Why won’t someone see me?”….

“Why won’t they open their door to me?”….

He forgets he is an angel…

An angel which temporarily has lost his wings…

He was never meant for this cold world…

His world is somewhere else…

Full of laughter, love, joy and spring!…

As tears roll down his cheeks…

His fatal reality becomes all too clear…

In the absence of love…

Which was not there since his tender years…

He crucifies his innocence and with one last sigh he lets go…

A star is now born!…

In the heavens the love he sought abundantly grows…

I tell you my child love those who need it most…

And when you  look at a star remember….

The light you so admire once belonged to a soul…

A sweet innocent child…

Who only wanted to be accepted and loved…

Do not let the darkness which consumes this world eat your heart….

Open your door, open your life….

For a homeless child is waiting…

And he is an angel in disguise!…
