The Boy With No Face


I use to close my eyes
And I'd see his face
I'd memorized him
Held him in a special place

I'd see his doe brown eyes
His long lashes
His lopsided smile
That he randomly flashes

I'd hear him laugh
Hear him lisp my name
See him run to hug me
To drag me to play games

I'd see him dressed up
Wearing his plastic fireman hat
Hear him make siren sounds
As he chased around the cat

I'd see his eyes tear up
Whenever we said goodbye
Feel his arms as I held him close
When he began to cry

As the years went by
He began to fade away
I did whatever I could
To make his memory stay

I'd recite the details I remembered
Trying to trace them in my mind
It didn't matter though
Time is unkind

It is as if I'm blind
His memory is erased
I grasp for him in my dreams
This boy with no face

*for my little brother... I pray you are safe, happy, and healthy wherever you are out in this world*
