The Children

were walking down the lonely grey road

they were so broken by sorrow

they walked so slow

I followed them for long with my eyes

overwhelmed by sadness

I looked away

but I had to look again

then I saw them walking up the sky

they walked and walked through the white

until they became tiny black specks

and disappeared.

 

The above poem is from my second book Circling the Sky (2013).
