Mystic Road

In the mist a young boy cried
From down the mystic forest road.
He shared truths his years belied.

I crept close to find that I’d
Never seen this strange abode.
In the mist a young boy cried.

From the road I stepped to hide
Fearful what this might forebode.
He shared truths his years belied.

I whispered low and he replied,
“As your past it’s truth I owe”.
In the mist a young boy cried.

He stepped forward to confide,
“It’s from true love that rich life flows”.
He shared truths his years belied.

For a moment we were side by side,
But then to yesterday he strode.
In the mist a young boy cried
He shared truths his years belied.
