Of those boys...




As upon the grass, I did lie,
I look upward to the heaven sky,
All I want is an answer to why,
And all I can do is think and sigh.
Oh grass green and birds that fly
Why oh why, did he say goodbye?
Why our love did he deny?
Why did I think he was my ally
When all he was me defy?
Why on him, did I rely?
It hurts, I think I might die.
I look up with one eye
I see a boy with smile sly
He came to me with a walk spry
"I will take you away, if you comply"
Said he. "Come give life a try."
I went with him with a tongue tie'.
A boy of 4 taught me not to cry
And not to stop just for a goodbye.
