Why The Boy Inside Stays - Poem by Clyde Bryson

I needed that boy
Inside of me.... Even today...
I'd ask him... long ago
Come visit and stay

I've oftened... needed his help
To heal those old wounds
That had cut... just so very deep
Even now they're on my mind
Probably forever to keep

And even though they damaged me
And left me with a ton of scars
I never let (that boy)
Wander far

The boy inside... reminds me...
Even though I'm a man
Whence I came... and whom I am

You ask...
Why...the boy remains with me-?
The beauty of snow...he can see
Even after the blissard... of those nights...
The boy.... can still start a snow ball fight

And another why...the boy has come to stay...
So that the man...with his children
In the snow could smile and play

So my friends...I say even if you are just like me
The man that has endless tears... and scars
And a damaged soul....
The boy can remind you...
Of who you are

And one last thing of why
The boy inside me must stay
A man with children...must teach
Forgive...learn...
Kneel...and...pray

The great beauty of his wife...and love
Those words...convey...
And that's also... why... this boy stays....
