Lost Path

by Lynette (Dedrick's mother)

When Dedrick was a little boy
We were very close
We were walking together down
The same path
We liked to go to the park
We went swimming
We went for walks
We bicycled
In grade school we had field trips together
All school activities
He wanted me involved with him
But now we have split paths
I'm still at home
Doing house chores
Dedrick is in his own world
And I'm wishing our paths
Would come back together
I'm wishing we could be on
The same path again
