The little boy lost

The Little Boy Lost

Father, father where are you going

O do not walk so fast.

Speak father, speak to your little boy

Or else I shall be lost,

The night was dark no father was there

The child was wet with dew.

The mire was deep, and the child did weep

And away the vapor flew.

Lyrics

Feel the sadness burning in my heart, you left to early father love. So many things I should've of said, but in your mind you knew it well. Holding on to what I got and love. But things still seem so dark and cold . The fire burning down my happiness, but it will rise.

So proud and strong you truly were, I took it with me as a tool, a gift from father to his only son. Watching over me with eagle eyes. You gave me freedom to a life, where dreams are born and truly become real.

See me falling, down and lonely, are the angels on their way? I'm in the dirt. Here me screaming, see me bleeding. 'Cause the days no more the same without you.

Promise me my son you always will cherish what you love believing in. Never lose your values, stand up for the day. Oh dear father thank you for the years, I'm writing this song on your desk. Together we can make it through the day.

See me falling, down and lonely, are the angels on their way? I'm in the dirt. Hear me screaming, see me bleeding. 'Cause the days no more the same with out you. ( x 2)

Reason for poem?

The reason I picked this poem is because, of my dad. My dad would always tell his kids stories about how his dad never appreciated anything he did. My dad and his dad never got along, they were always arguing for no reason. My dad has even told me before how he can't remember his dad ever saying "I love you" to him.

Connection between the song and the poem?

the song and poem talk about a boy who's father left him. They both show relationships between a father and son. The poem and the song talk about how the son fells about his father. Both show the pain the child feels and the abandonment he is dealing with.

Original poem

My son is my life but we are more distant than ever

My father is my idol but making him proud is a lot of pressure

My son means the world but I don't think that he knows

My father isn't around but his love still shows

My son is my shadow I just hope that he knows.

Relationship between the two poems

Both of the poems show a type of relationship between father and son. In the poem I picked it just tells from the sons point of view. However, my poem shows both sides of the story. My original poem is basically the father saying that he really loves his son, but he does not think that his son sees it.
