A MISSING CHILD – JESSICA VALDEZ

 

A missing child I never knew

a broken heart could keep on breaking.

You keep on sending your love, but no one’s there to take it.

Rivers of tears keep a steady flow…

But no one’s there to know.

You who I want to see…

All of what I think and feel, it’s you I want here with me.

Not a day goes by without wishing for a hug, a kiss, a laugh, a cry…

For soothing hurts, tucking you into bed, or just a simple touch.

Not a night goes by I don’t miss you so …. much !

Or my heart doesn’t break just a lil’ bit more.

Shards turned to ice constantly falling to the floor.

I don’t believe in god, but still I pray.

That somehow someday You’ll be back in my life
