Is He Coming Back?

Tumbling down with confusion
Hopes and dreams,
Caught in an illusion
Being sent over,
Not knowing if he will be back
Patiently—
Waiting for the end of the world
Caught up—
In what's left of nothing
Crying,
Over pain and suffering
To take away his life,
Would destroy his family's pride
This strong young man,
Scared inside
Afraid no one is listening
To his painful cries
He reaches out for comfort,
But no one is there
His friends are all gone—
Passed on
No one is left,
But one girl
With as much as she can swallow
She listens to his fears
With care and understanding,
She wipes away his tears
