-Our Children-

I look out the front window,

I watch our children as they play,

In my heart I hope that is the way they'll always stay,

Someday they will grow up,

Be out on their own,

I wonder if they'll visit when I'm old and all alone?

Until that day beckons,

I'll sit here and pray,

That our little children always stay that way.

....so lovely .... so bittersweet ..... an poetic elegy ...... most writers would take a novel that you expressed so well in just a few masterful lines - and yes it exploited the cinema in my mind - I could see as I read .....
