For Kyron Horman

By Sean Cruz

Portland, Oregon—

An age-progressed image is heartbreaking in so many ways

You see so much of your child's life is gone, and for what

You feel your child's pain in ways that most will never know

Along with your own

It is painful to remember the good times

Years ago, you could take a deep breath

But now your chest is too tight all the time

A certain leaden numbness

Encases your heart full of tears

And today feels just like yesterday

An artist’s idea consummately skillful

Took your breath away the first time you saw it

And now you dread the need for another

May your baby boy come home
