I dreamt of you lastnight
In the arms of a stranger
Too late to save you
It broke my heart
I've no idea
The pain your parents felt
The desperation that drove them
To put you in danger
Worse then where they came
This is crazy
Please God
All the Gods
Doesn't matter which
Take this child
And ease their pain
I usually delete disturbing pictures from my FB newsfeed, but I left the photo's of the lifeless refugee children.Β Β We've got to stop this.
