we hung from trees, we were invincible, we even stole from bees.
we swam in the river, we laid in the sun, we ran and ran, till our hearts beat like a drum.
we ran like the wind, we were young.
we were so strong and then it all went wrong.
we grew up and life revealed its true self.
it’s sadistic and cruel and shows no mercy.
You took Your life, You died under Your weight.
i never would of imagined such a fate for such a strong and happy little child.
i’ll never forget You, You’re forever gone.
life really did so much wrong for a boy who never did any harm.
