A heart felt piece that I composed for a special childhood friend.

When the Young Die Young and Violently by Emme Symone (Dedicated to my friend from childhood)

Speak to me while I sleep, tell me all the ugly things;

What you endured as a babe on the night of your release.

I remember you in second grade, your raven curly locks,

Though I can't recall your face...

Only heartbreak when you never returned.

Your father was a monster, a downright hellish goon,

Your innocence fell victim to a crime I can't attune.

Slumber timelessly,

Because it can't define you,

Don't cry anymore,

Your pain does not endure,

I hope you are smiling,

Guarded by the great lion,

Sitting at his throne,

He helped your spirit on.

I will bring you a posy, red and rosy, to the place in which you lay until my time to do the same.

We shall greet again, my love, just wait on my release.
