Lonely Bones

Deep below the cold dark dirt

Lies the body

Of the boy they search for.

I bleed for his mother

And for her broken heart

Over his lonely bones.

All their pain and fear and hurt

Are lying down there with him

And when they finally bring him up

To see the sun again

Their hearts will not be healed

And he can’t stop their pain.

But there he’ll be and they will hope

That the aching mystery will fade

When Johnny finally goes home.
