Daily missive for Tuesday the 12th of February.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Tuesday the 12th of February.

Did you really
Watch from the shadows
Afraid to be seen.
Were you aware
Of the impact
Lack of concern had
On the process
Of development
The probability is
An observer will
Interfere with an outcome
Shape it, mould it
According to their own
Self-image,
Like it or not.
It would be nice
To know
You cared enough
To be seen
Rather than to believe
I was alone.
To be watched over
Has its drawbacks
Elements of control
A kinder way,
A benign presence
With nothing but good intentions
Might ease the progress
Of life.
Parents are gods
To children
So powerful an influence
On the formation
Of a good self
To feel ignored
Or worse,
Abandoned
Can wreak a whirlwind
On wellbeing.
The godhead
Has a lot to answer for
In absence
When faith
Is all we are asked to hold.
Hope is the final
Preserve
Of the lonely heart
In need of succour.
A rumour of interest
Is not enough
Once the moment has gone,
What is felt
At the time
Will always remain
As under-appreciated.
