21. 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 ones 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.
