Lyrics

Lost Child

Written By: Kim Leonard

Lost Child

My heart aches to see your smile again
I can barely imagine your face
I can feel your spirit now and then
But your memories are leaving this place

I search my soul for pictures of you
Back when your love was never-ending
I need to figure out just what to do
To bring you home and start the mending

Chorus:
There’s nothing more painful than a child who is lost
I pray that God will bring you home no matter what the cost
Rescue me from this hell, a life of worry and disgrace
When your child trades his life for drugs and leaves without a trace
Not a moment passes by without me thinking of you
Stay safe until the angels lead you home to a life brand new

What day did you lose your innocence?
Was I too busy to see your pain?
Your hatred and anger made no sense
Why did the sunshine turn into rain?

Didn’t I teach you how to be good?
You were a wonderful, loving child
If I could change what went wrong I would
How does a decent kid become so wild?

Chorus

If I expected too much from you
It’s because I knew you’d do great things
You had brains and determination too
And the face of an angel without wings

No matter how old you will become
I will always worry about you
A mother forever loves her son
The beautiful baby she once knew

Chorus
