Lost & Found

Standard

He has fallen
forgotten
to the ground

His small smile fixed
against the rising tide
of fear and panic

In the midst of play
a tumble
an impact
lost in the wide world

His smile remains fixed
but beginning to falter
starting to crumble
as an hour passes
then another

But then in the midst of loss
comes a miracle
a familiar hand picks him up
holds him close
a well-known voice
scolding him for his absence

His smile remains
for in the midst of loss
at long last
he is found
