It needs to be said .........a poem

The little boy was stacking blocks on
the living room floor one night
as his father walked into the room to make
sure the stove was alright

Out of the corner of his eye the boy wondered
will Dad say he's proud
Instead his father asked "do you have
to play quite so loud"

The mother was dressing for the dance
in heels in beauty in the scent of her hair
as he wondered through taking his coat
from the dressing chair

She asks herself without even speaking
I wonder if he'll even ask me to dance
what of love and respect what about care
do we have even one chance

To old lovers meeting on the street having left
each other in tears
in the end they walk away thinking of children
of dreams they haven't had for fears

So I have thought and thought and thought I've
even made a choice
never again to let it go unsaid
I will even use my voice

The next time I feel it..... the next time
we meet let's thank God above
I am going to tell you for you
"When ever I see you - l see Love "

Just a wonderful awesome poem. You say so much in your words. I will redouble my meager efforts to say what is in my heart today. And tomorrow I will give special thanks for you as a writer and a friend.
