The Closet (poem)

Updated on December 19, 2016

I weave for you a story of a boy

Whose loneliness would cause your heart to bend

Till then he never knew the taste of Joy

Till shadow in his closet turned to friend


They talked of all the wonders of the sun

And how it felt to join the birds and fly

Behind closed doors such magic could be spun

Enough to let his miseries drift by


Then came that day when boy was heading home

He met a girl who asked him for his name

From there they talked and let thoughts freely roam

Somehow their worlds would never be the same


When in his closet with such news to share

He realized his friend no longer there

      As a former teacher of special needs kids, I saw some of mine with severe emotional problems like the child in your poem. Our program gave each one a chance to vent their problems or needs. I miss those times because it was very meaningful to me as having been a child like many that I had taught. Blessings to you my friend. whonu
