-Our Children-

Updated on July 25, 2012

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.

      epigramman 5 years ago 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 .....
