Ka-Destiny - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

A gently man of 64, eyes so blue, and kind,
Befriends a young boy who's lost, and lonely,
in the old man a good friend he'll find.
Two lost souls, one young, one old,
Entwine like magic through fates enchanted hands,
Each will need the others help on their
way to their respective promise land.
No more their hearts feel alone,
as the months fly by their friendship grows strong.
But all too soon it seems, the old man must leave,
And meet his destiny alone.
How can he tell the little boy he's moving home?
With a gentle smile, a tear in his eye, he says,
'Please kido, please don't cry.'
'What about me? Please don't go away! '
'If only I could, I would stay,
but my home is millions of light years away.'
'Will you be back again someday? ' Bobby asked
Pointing into the air.
'In your heart you'll find me anytime, anywhere.'
Then with a hug, they part, and grin,
and that is how this story about, Ted, and Bobby, does end.
