As a Child


As a child he feared the night,
The place where monster hid.
As a man he feared the light,
Of a new day he could not rid.

As a child he was truly free,
Taking in life with every breath.
As a man he was a mystery,
Crying as he walked towards death.

As a child he had a mother,
Who thought of him as brave.
As a man he lost his lover,
Now he stands at his mother's grave.

As a child he feared the night,
but tomorrow meant a new day.
As a man he feared the light,
As tomorrow meant a new shade of gray.
