Our Boys - Poem by Tracey Gilbert

Faces of mine and yours
Our past

Made from us, our love
To hate, fight, make them gone
Gone is the innocence of their, our, youth

Too much, forever gone
Take them away
Take them from this
Hide them, shelter them, love them

All our faces
Such sadness in their eyes

Happiness when we talk
Childlike when we laugh

They miss our love, their youth
Gone are the days we cant get back

Give them life, give them love
Something to hold onto

Gone are the days when they ran, played, laughed, loved
The nights when they slept

Never the same as yesterday
Whole as they can be today
