little boy

 

running

down

 

down those

gravel hills

 

cry

 

tears run

down

your brown

beautiful/handsome

face

 

you always had

such long beautiful/handsome?

lashes

 

your eyes

lit up

 

happy

 

for you

 

for your smile

 

I’d kill

 

I’d die

 

for you

 

be safe

 

we forgot

you

 

your happy

giggling

laughter

 

your awkward

kindness

 

your soul

 

so perfect

 

to me

 

Andrew

 

broken

now

 

and I

 

I am

at fault

too

 

My words

have helped/hindered

 

created this

 

this sad/scared

you

 

You who have no need

of me

of anyone

of the world

 

often I think

 

if I go

 

when I am gone

 

perhaps you will smile

 

and learn/remember

how to live

 

again
