The Red Child

He smiled at me and laughed

for the first time in months,

this marvelous, special child

who is so innocent yet

so troubled and stricken.

We learned together about each other,

and fear and anxiety

from being in battle with his mind,

and his innocent soul,

melted away into joy and love.

Today is a new day

and I hope he smiles again

and we continue our oath,

but I am ready to face his demons with him

no matter the cost

and work alongside him

so he will never be lost.
