Vision fade to black…

And in the distance screams a child…
My child.
“Help me daddy…”
8 years old and just out of my sight…
A small boy screams
My son… terror… pain?
And that is a noise like no other
And my response is like any father’s.
And no matter what is in the way or how dark…
And I run to that sound

And in the distance a young man screams
My child…
“Help me dad”
A 20 year old just out of my sight
A young man screams
Terror? Pain?
And it is a noise like no other…
And like I father, I run to that sound…

I am too late
Fade to black.
