Poem: You would always be , somebody's child.

Updated on December 12, 2011

You would always be Somebody’s child.

You are all

grown up now

Matured enough

to be an adult

Your parents

are still alive

Are they ?

At least one

of then.

Do you know

that this

Is the time

When you

should really

Show your


Yes , now that

you are grown.

It’s was not easy

raising you all

The correct way

growing up kids

It’s not easy

to be that

Listening ear,

To hear

that tricky

Gu Gu


But It meant


Even when

Your parents

ear drums

Were pounding!

The loads

Of redundancies,

Two and three

Year olds

think they say.

With absolutely

No meaning

But your parents

Kept on


And swear

That they

Could hear.


What you are


Now you are

this big


Not even

a love you


And to you

that is fair!

Even those



Most young people

Gets caught up in


They are

Into something

Your parents

are still there

Look at you now,

All grown up

Think you

are all that

And more

In the eyes

of great parents

You are only

their babies

That’s the truth,

absolutely sure.

When was

the last time?

You called

and told them

how much you

loved them.

When was

the last time?

You called

Just to speak for

A while.

Showing them

That you care.

When was

the last time?

While reminiscing

You stood up


that you were

once just a child

And with that

you then called

Said thanks.


they were always

There for you.

Even if

you think


Had it not

been for them,

You won’t be

here presently

Acting like

some big man

big woman.

When was

the last time

you remembered

The ones

who held you

In their hands.

They are

the ones who

made it?


As you


The saying

You are once

A man /woman

But twice

a child.

Yes this

Big man /woman

Would always

Be somebody’s


Yes you!

      Thank you sincerely Theresa , because this is exactly the purpose of parents and families , but it seems as if it has all taken a turn for the worst , so what it boils down to is people like yourself with your own beautiful family. Bless. To enjoy and share and spread the greatness that it was meant to be , I can only soy , I am proud of your accomplishment, because that's a great milestone when you can speak positive of your family.

      Thanks for reading and adding a beautiful comment. I look forward to stopping by and reading some of your work soon.

      Such important advice. We will miss our parents when they are gone and we hope and want our children to love and want to spend time with us. I am very fortunate that my three grown sons and their families all live no more than an hour from me. We get together as a family at least once a month and sometimes more. Building memories, strengthening the bonds of love. Thank you for a wonderful poem. Theresa

      Thank you dear "AE" always great to see you and to hear your beautiful comments , and of course this one fits right there.

      There goes your son making you smile as only a son knows how . We as children should if nothing else learn to develop a character that's pleasing to our parents , what I mean is we know our parents won't be pleased if we are , whatever you think is truly disgusting.

      We owe them at least that. A voice they can hear even when they are deaf- don't simply sit waiting for news of their death. There is a reason your trip to life took this turn , figure out it's meaning.

      Everything in life , have its purpose , we must find its meaning.'

      mrslagibb great to see you, thanks for reading and agreeing w/Frank .

      If your parents are not like that it's not even the slightest of problems , it's now you turn to show what exactly you are working with.

      There are times in this life when it becomes our turn at the wheel of life only we must be able to recognize the signs.

      Thanks again stay well

      You knocked me out with Shirley Caesar. I just got off the phone with my old Mom. She said it was just good to hear my "little" voice.
