I lay my head, but sleep will not come.
The streets are cold at night.
Here in my corner, rats scurry and run,
Eyes closed, I pray for daylight.
I know not what will become of me,
I am alone, afraid and scared,
Hiding in shadows, where no-one will see
A child for whom nobody cared.
My tears are my company, I let them fall,
Whispers around me abound,
No-one will miss me, no-one at all,
I huddle on this concreted ground.
The light is bright, I shield my eyes,
Am lifted and carried above,
Into the warmth, such a welcome surprise,
Here I have found deepest love.
I look down below on a heap of rags
A shape in a permanent sleep,
No more in a world of labels and tags,
I have no reason to weep.
