Ecce Puer

Rating: 3.5
Of the dark past
A child is born;
With joy and grief
My heart is torn.

Calm in his cradle
The living lies.
May love and mercy
Unclose his eyes!

Young life is breathed
On the glass;
The world that was not
Comes to pass.

A child is sleeping:
An old man gone.
O, father forsaken,
Forgive your son!

Or as the last words were spoken by you know who, " Eloi Eloi, lama sabachtani" - It's tough to have to die to find out you have been deluded.; however, I'm sure your father forgave you James
