Taking my child in my heart
To comfort his griefs,
Taking my child in my arms
To dry his tears,
Taking my child in my hand
To absorb his sadness.

Taking my child in my life
To lead him to his future,
Taking my child in my hope
To give him confidence in his stride,
Taking my child in my coloured dreams
And let him go to sleep in peace.

A Daily missing ,
Feeling a different future,
Struggling against this instant,
Accepting this present time,
And this living otherwise.

"6 years old, brunette hair, pink dress."
"I’m with the grandmother."
"Last seen?"

Later they found her by the moon star wall.
It sang her arrival to hold a stranger’s hand and, grinning, she skipped to her grandmother’s arms.
