Missing Children

It may be the neighborhood I live in or the street I live on but we have a lot of missing children. I am not trying to alarm you but be aware, the high pitched sound of shouting and laughter has all but disappeared. Once in a while, especially when it gets warmer, I'll sit out back and listen to the neighbors grandchildren as they come to visit and admittedly get a little envious but the kids that used to fill the air with playful glee are all gone, they've grown up and have families of there own. The only solace I have is when they come back to visit mom and dad their kids fill the void, at least for a short time.
