Daily missive for Monday the 29th of December.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 29th of December.

Just a moment ago,
The child within
Was me.
What did he see?
To make him
What he has become.
A cheeky presence,
A sulking teen.
A promise,
Of what might have been.
The best and worst
Of me, in spades.
The reminder,
When an image fades,
Of the good things
I have seen,
And done.
The laughter,
Tears,
Tragedy and fun.
Never one,
Without the other.

The loss of a son,
Father, Mother.
Estranged from a brother.
Surviving,
Spirits reviving,
With the love
Of a good woman,
Giving me the belief,
That I can,
One day be the man,
I hoped to be.
When I was just a boy,
Full of joy,
Who ran wild and free,
With a pocket full
Of dreams.
A mind full of schemes,
And a lifetime
To play with.
