The Boy With No Name

The Boy With No Name
Kay Rice

Two children passing slowly looking up by chance,
The boy with no name whose eyes caught your glance.
Grew up to be the man to watch you, to shield you,
The hand that would hold and cherish your heart true.

Strength and desire unknown, to awaken and to arise,
Giving a gift of freedom while tempering your cries.
So many dreams were broken, yet new ones await to arrive,
As fate tossed the coin to see how you would survive.

A curse of love unknown in years before in innocence,
All the dreams you had left in dark and chained silence.
A memory of a meeting of years ago rises in his eyes,
Knowing all this time the life you’ve led, were lies.

The choice was made before either stood in this place,
The curse of his memories tormented years show on his face.
Nightmares of a path untaken, waken him with pounding heart.
So many years have passed now, standing, facing a new start.

So many years have passed before you in trial and in tears,
Your soul tortured by pain now failing from all the years.
Falling down as he walked from the shadows to catch you,
Will all the pain be soothed as your heart beats new?

This boy with no name who caught your eye long ago,
Grown now to take his place to protect and to show,
Destined love legendary through timeless tales and song,
Now facing each other knowing your meeting was not wrong.

A coin was tossed and the earth stood still and changed,
Silence was broken and fears were turned to heated rage.
A coin was tossed and freedom was now within your reach,
As you were lifted up from your cell, darkness was breached.

The boy with no name whose eyes caught your glance,
As you passed him in childhood’s days by chance.
Grew up to be the man to watch you, to shield you,
The hand that would hold and cherish your heart true.
