Consumed With Love,

Updated on April 2, 2011

Loves first Kiss

Looking through the bars, what do I see?

the most delicious blue eyes looking back at me,

That cherished smile I have become to know so well,

with that skin so fair, so soft that everyone can tell.

That kneeling here is where I want to be,

looking through those bars so everyone can see,

that small clenched fist held up to the dawns light,

of fairies you dream of well into the night.

The smell of talc, so perfumed and so clear,

it's all to much strain, but makes me stay here.

Beside your side, I will always want to be,

to cherish you now for all eternity.

I will watch you grow, my heart so full of pride,

my feelings for you I shall never be able to hide,

to protect you for all the days are long,

to stay with you always and sing you my song.

Oh grandson be a happy little boy,

your nana only wants to share your joy,

as the countryside awakes, with birdsong trill and bright,

nana will guide you and teach you wrong from right

All my love I will give to you each and every day,

soft whispers, loving touches I will send all your way,

and when I am gone, my legacy you will hold

so close to your heart and in your hands, tiny and cold

that everyone will see just how precious you are,

looking through the window at the world out there, so far,

Little boy in your innocence many stories will be told,

nana will save you from this world and turn you from the cold,

sitting at your cot side, looking through the bars,

nana will keep you warm and away from all that harms.

      Hey saddle, thank you hunnie for stopping by. I am afraid that my poetic voice is really not that good, I love attempting something new, but this side of writing still is a mystery to me.

      You are a dear sweet man to still have just beautiful memories. It is sad that children do grow older and fly the nest, I miss my son, but there is never a day goes by that I don't think about him. Nothing changes the world over. Your children are fortunate to have a father who is so sensitive and loving. Sending hug's hunnie.

      What a terrific joyful loving poem. I so remember those days of sitting on the floor in our nursery looking through those bars, smelling the talc, watching those blue eyes looking back at me in wonderment. Oh how those days came and went to fast and now all 4 have grown to teens and adults and don't look back at their dad much anymore. How sad to lose them, cherish the moments always. Hugs

      Hi Foss, thank you once again for your kind words, they mean such a lot to me. Writing has been part of my healing process and it has really help me get to terms with my past.

      Sofs thank you my friend, always there with encouragement. Apart from my son Craig, Callum is the only remaining relation I have and they are both so precious to me.

      Sharyn, legacy is the only thing I can leave my grandson, and not a monetary legacy at that. But if I complete my memoirs and with photographs can let him meet the family, he will never live in doubt as I have. x
