Small Voices

                                         Standing in Heaven
                                  a small voice calling my name
                                          the image is small
                                     I'm sorry God needed me 
                                    my child who was not born

by Michael J Falotico
Dedicated to all who have
lost a child before or after

Wild Child

Wild Child
T. C. Boyle -
Told Victor's story.
Lived, aged, died at years forty. 
Teacher and pupil both - failed. 
Child from wild - no wild from child

Long Rain

with my child
on my shoulder, i walk
in the long rain
carrying the heaviness
of shattered dreams

There's always a house
Some weird    vacant residence
Kids stay away from
Especially on certain nights
Those nights when the Moon is bright

Climbing those porch steps
Would take more than just courage
No child would risk it
It's the Taylor House Story
A tale both true    and GORY!

The house I describe
Has three stories    a long porch
And    boarded windows
Except for one by the top gable
'Death's Door'   so goes the fable

No boards on this one
No glass either    just splinters
Three jagged sabres
It's said    a boy in his teens
Stuck in his head - GUILLOTINED!

Now!    On moonlit nights
Some still hear those awful thumps
The window comes down
THUMP!    His head hits the roof    THUMP!
Rolls on down    hits the ground    THUMP!

Well?    To climb those steps?
It would be insanity
No child would risk it
A vision so full of dread
That thumping    bouncing    DEAD    HEAD!

A Forest Child

Tree seen in forest
Is one of many thousands
Showing its branches
Now to me, a forest child:
One needing Christ's redemption

A Balance of Power

When a child was a child
A man was young and strong
As A child was growing well
A man was getting old
And losing living strength
