Scream

I heard the scream fill the air, Your fear ripped and spilled out on this quiet night, Hanging loud in the air, Out of the closed window it flew, to my ears and I knew, I heard the scream fill this night, a child's roar, not in delight, more of fear and dispirited powerlessness, Protecting a mother, with no other way, no muscles yet to push your words away, I heard your scream, I know what to do, Red light, blue light, is going to be coming for you, The message is sent, loud and clear, I took an oath, one that i hold dear, to protect and defend, In the darkest of nights, I know no fear, except what if it was not my ear? Will there be another to help you, in a quiet way. No more scream on this night, sleep easy little one, always hold dear, there are angels at night, they don't always show that they are near, to do that which is right, regardless of the deal.
