CRInktober 2018 Day 9: Child

We found you in a swamp
Lost from your family
Talking only in echos.
We took you with us for safety’s sake
And you took our hearts with you.
Fiercely cute
In need of protection
Yet willing to protect in turn.
We left you with those
Who could better care for you
But never did you leave our hearts.
We shall remember you when we think
Of fireworks
And flowers
And daggers.
