Wherever you are…
Your fourth birthday shouldn’t be celebrated like this. I hope to God they find you soon.
A child was abducted and cannot be found –
All kinds of rumours and theories abound.
For the parents on holiday, each second is fear
That their dear little Madeleine may never appear.
The story in Portugal captures the heart
Of each mother and father and tears one apart
At the sheer desperation and anguish to bear,
The waiting for news in hope and despair.
Snatched from their room which was locked and checked,
This was a crime you would never expect.
Now everyone waits for a crucial lead,
But someone out there is a devil indeed.
