Shadow and Fear
by Tanya Cabral

Hidden in shadow
Lost in fear
From off the cheek
A single tear.

Crying out
No one hears
Standing alone
Battling fears.

Far from light, far from hope
Far from all held dear
The cry again, a bitter weep
For them to find here here.

No one comes, she is alone
Lost from what she knows
Through mist and fog and bitter cold
Silently she goes.
