Sam, I have never found myself
In a seething swamp with no choices,
No way out,
No reason why not.

Sweet child
Your face could beguile;
Inside your soul
Just cried.

Glad ! am
to’ve shared a short path
with you;

Wish that I
could have been
a bit of nurture;

Sad I am
you could not
accept help.

Sweet child
Your face could beguile;
Inside your soul
Just cried.
