Yesterday's Child

Yesterday's Child has finally been broken
Ready to find his place in the world
No longer wild, except for a token
rememberance of all he believed in before
Sunrise has found him tired and weeping
for all the lost glories that once seemed so sure
Solace will come to him when he is sleeping
wake him up gently, then show him the door.

Ever so quietly waiting in shadows
wondering if someone might call out his name
But the years pass in silence, staring out windows,
watching the players but missing the game
Even as evening falls on the horizon
changing its wardrobe in honor of night,
he combs through the torn, tattered memories inside him
Ahh but Yesterday's Child... is nowhere in sight.
