Bobby Skewes, you never came home



no one prepared me
inscribed 58,000 plus
one boy, Bobby Skewes
my next door neighbor
helped me learn how to ride a bike
six then...he was eight
i found his name
touched it  

this wall is enormous
stretches much too far
astonished--
is there no other way?
an empty chair at the table
forever more
a life hardly lived

to honor this life offering
"God shed His grace on Thee"
America
abundance
at such a cost
thank you
