A tiny little Bracelet
A tiny little bracelet,
Thin and narrow though it be.
May one day make a difference,
Between what is and might well be.
If a loved one wants to wander,
Out the door and beyond the gate.
There may be nothing we can do,
Except to worry, watch and wait.
But if indeed the bracelet,
With a number etched inside,
Is wrapped about the arm,
It may save the tears we cry.
A safe return we hope to see,
Of the loved one who is lost.
The value of that small bracelet,
May be more than worth the cost.
