The Shepherd cried until he couldnŐt
Shed another tear, another rise from the sun
And the night that fell below the passion of night
Where the sight of his small boy hanging from a tree
With his loosely wrangled hair like the grassy Knowles
Could no longer be seen.

The faint air levied its head
Amongst the hours and the Shepard
Faced his wife with a clenched fist,
A clenched jaw,
With her tears around his shoulder
And a boy that stood through the walls
But no longer within their presence,

No longer did his voice gallop at the sight of breakfast,
At the sight of his motherŐs curls
Circling his fathers eyes
So majestically, like a tree
Standing at his highest point,
Waving at the sky
For the expectance of another day

An expectance to see their boy
Walk with his small hips
Towards their small kitchen,
For a future became lost on that fateful day.

The pain of this is unbearable.  I hope it brought a sliver of comfort to write.
