Where are you going to my little runaway?
There’s only pain today.
Is it true you are lost my precious runaway?
Just hunger pangs today.
There’s no one at home who understands you.
So how will you cope in the cold and the dark?
Your world so empty.
Your life so sad.
There are no answers little runaway.
Where will you be sleeping tonight?
There are no sympathies precious runaway.
So how will you feel tonight?
But maybe tomorrow will be brighter.
For maybe your star will shine.
So turn around my little runaway.
Heaven’s too full of your kind.

    After reading Bryan and Francine's comments, and Bryan's excellent drabble I decided to offer a few words in support. Inspired by an old rock song, I hope that in some small way, my Drabble is adequate.

    Thank you @rick. A beautiful drabble. It is now on the FB page. I even mentioned your books, as I did for Jason and Peter.
    (sorry, I thought I commented yesterday but obviously, I didn't :-(

    Very good, Rick, a Del Shannon song, I think it was?

    Thank you Francine and Bryan. Del Shannon? Before my time Bryan, I think. then maybe not. More likely a band called Dakota.
