Lost and Found

by a young man in detention

Love was lost when my mother passed
like the sun behind the clouds.
So, I took to the streets to fill the gap
like the earth when it cracks.  
A young lost soul with no sense of direction
roaming this lonely world with a heart full
of hatred and deception.
Love was lost, love was found.
She became my queen,
she held the crown.  
The glow that guided me,
she became the light
to my lonely darkened world.
A love I lost, a love awoke--
my guiding light.
