A Sad Farewell

She appears from the shadows her
baby in a shawl no one seems to
see her even tho it’s freezing cold

No one seems to hear her as she
asks for a dime just to feed her
baby as it’s near his feeding time

She stalls in the middle of the road
in weakness the cars they woulden’t
stop nearly crossing her and her hungry
little tot

She looks up in anger as people cross
the street no one there to help her as
she struggles to her feet

She makes it to a chapel and hobbles
through it’s doors knowing it’s the last time
shell see her baby as she lies him on the floor

She sits down beside him her eyes are filled
with tears as she takes his little hand and
whispers in his ear

You know ill always love you’ll never
leave my heart the only whey for you
surviving is that were going to have to part

She stands up now crying and walks
towards the door her heart is breaking as
she listens to her baby crying on the floor
she knows she has to do this becouse he
would’t last the nite with her

She makes it down the steps and stagers
down the road looks back at the people
as they garter in the cold she knows her
baby’s safe now as he was found crying
on the floor she turns her head in sorrow
and disappears into the shadows
once more

A Sad Farewell
