Stop! All of you.
I will not watch another person die of this.
I will not watch another will be broken
Another child wither and die from lack of love
Why can't I hold you up in my arms
How can you slip away
How can I be expected to fight my pain
When your pain cuts through me like a knife
I cannot watch you die
And yet I cannot turn away
I must keep reaching for you
Keep plunging my hands deeper into the water, hoping to find yours reaching back
Hoping to feel your fingers suddenly clutching mine
I'll jump if need be into the swirling stream
If only I can find you
Damn you. Don't you leave me.
I can't take another one
My heart can't break again
Let this thing, this horrible, horrible sickness take me
I'm an old man
It's the young ones I can't stand to see let go
So much to live for
But, oh the pain
I understand, oh, god I understand
But please
Please, for all our sakes
Don't let yourself slip away.

Bobby,

It is going to take a lot of hard work to prevent death of the kids by abuse. As you said,
Quote:

we may at times have to be willing to put the interest of others ahead of ourselves. It will take a willingness to speak out. Not everybody will be able to do it, but some of us must.

I can remember a couple of men who did just that for me when I was a kid, these men are heroes to me. Their kindness will never be forgotten. They never knew about the SA, I was to scared to tell. However, they saved my life and I will tell the story sometime.

Love ya

Darrel

Bobby,

You hit it again, and so vividly:

Quote:

But please
Please, for all our sakes
Don't let yourself slip away.
Another one for all of us to remember.

Much love,
Larry
