Little Boy Voices
"Here Kitty," the little girl called from afar
As I searched for the sweet kitty tracks.
It never ceases to amaze me how cute they are,
And how quickly they can scamper out back.
Next stop is the river, raging down to the sea,
The voices in my head tell me just what to do.
Sweet little kitties, I'll risk my life for thee,
So sing loudly so I can save you.
My heart feels fear as I hear their plaintive calls,
So my love for them drives me to run headlong.
I'd risk my life to save them from the falls,
I know they trust me and my love, so strong.
The other children sense the panic I feel,
As the kittens' cries for their mommy swell.
I feel my panic too, for my love is real,
Nothing can stop me, not heaven or hell.
The voices in my head command me to go on,
As my love is driven by their plaintive cries.
Don't worry kitties, I'll take you all home,
For without your love I would surely die.
"Here Kitty, Kitty," the little girl laughs with joy...
"Look, Mommy! I saved every one of their lives!"
"Oh, nothing really. I'm a tough little boy,"
"No, Mommy. I'm too strong to have tears in my eyes."
"I promise, Mommy. I'm too strong to have tears in my eyes."
