Follow the sun, little one –
Far from home, you did roam.
Your heart in a fright, as you were
Lost in sight.
But hope – you held on to,
With all your might.

By the mailbox, laid to rest –
Thinking about your mess..
I said, “Go no further – would be best,
Already too far.” – Wondering where you are.

As my intention came through,
It brought comfort to you.
Your soul – saddened,
Missing – your Human, you imagined.

You said – “I’ll wait…
Just till it gets late”
Figuring out, how I could help –
I connected…
Images shown, distance flown,
Information, I collected.

I said, “I’ll tell them where you are..
You’re not that far!”
So you sat and waited,
Till the sun lowered –
Reaching night, with a lingering fright..

In your kingdom, you remembered -The Sun and the Sunset’s colored bars,
And where they are.
As the morning star fell,
Suddenly – the way you could tell!

Follow the sun, little one –
You would find your way home,
By the time the day was done.
So you set out –
Without doubt,
“I Know the way”, you would say!

First a walk, then a run,
Familiarity came, with the setting of the sun.
Far from home, you did roam..

But you found your way,
Even late in the day..
You never gave up hope,
As you conquered your fears,
You made it home to joyful tears.
