Poem #58: Dear


Running, you cry out and 
whimper. I hurry to your side, but 
you can't tell me what hurts.
Your sweet brown eyes 
gaze into the distance, 
unseeing, focused inward. 
My heart breaks, but
you can't tell me what's wrong.
In seconds, you fall to pieces,
centered and still in an 
unfamiliar, ominous way that 
leaves me shaken and frightened, but
you can't tell me what you need.
Dear one, 
     your innocence touches me,
     your devotion thrills me,
     your love warms me, but 
I can't tell you how it hurts.
