For Love of Your Child

For Love of Your Child


Is there a list that I have missed

Of doing time to fit the crime:

This for that, tit for tat,

Hard to say…

Can we love too much

But it’s not the same

God is God

To be worshipped,

Admired, beloved

And held in awe,

Where you are flesh of my flesh,

Blood of my blood,

Human as me in my mortality.

Stranger in the Night

Stranger in the Night

A stranger in the night,
Moving in the shadows
And avoiding the light.
A pale moon shining
Just enough to see his way,
To put his mind at ease
Before the dawn of day.

“I’m not allowed to see you
Through no fault of my own,
But before I go away
I’ve come to let you know
You will never be alone,
I will always love you so.”

The small child smiles
As she opens her eyes,
“Dada came in the dark
And he kissed me goodbye,”

She points to a mark
Like a tiny little heart
In the palm of her hand.

Daddy’s Friend

Daddy’s Friend

Burying her head in the pillow
She listened for the footsteps
And then he was there
Sitting on her bed
She could smell his breath
What’s the matter
Stomach ache
His hand snaked under the bedclothes
Is that better
Muffled voices from the lounge
She squirmed, yes

The Street Beggar (Repost: 04.06.2010)

The Street Beggar

On a cold wintery morning
Under the weak watery sun
Mother and child shivered together,
On a day barely begun.

They waited on the traffic isle
For the rush of cars to start,
Hoping for some charity
To relieve their starving hearts.

A few cars passed, too fast to see,
Then, bumper to bumper they came and went,
Blinkered people safe and warm,
Snug in their cocoons.
