For What Lies Hidden

A collection of all my poetry in an order I think makes reading it even more fun and exciting.


122. Growing Up and Away

I watched you when

 You were a small thing,

 Crawling amongst the feet of men

 To sit down and sing.


I stood by as you grew

 Caring for your every need,

 All the while you sat and drew

 Following no one’s lead.


As a teenager you changed

 For better, not for worse;

 The fields in thought you ranged,

 Never a word you uttered was terse.


Once a grown lad

 You found a job but

 Never at me were you mad

 For keeping with you in our hut.


It's sad to see how you've gone

 When I am still here,

 You would have always shone,

 A place in this heart and home yours forever my dear.
