Can You Help Me?
I’m his grandfather, but I don’t hear
Very well. Can you help me?
Ask him to repeat what he said,
But more slowly. About his mother.
She lay in the grass with her red
Dress on. It doesn’t make any sense.
Ask him, where is she now?
I’m a little worried, a little tense.
It’s not like her. She promised
She’d give me a call. I stayed
By the phone, but I missed
What she said. Ask him how
She looked. Was she scared?
As far as I know, up to now
She’s been just fine.
But everyone, I suppose,
At one time or another,
Runs into trouble.
