Enfant


Enfant

Gentle one lying in my arms
Your eyes and smile
Examples of sweet charms
How I wish that some way
I could shelter you from all harm
I long to cradle you
All your life
But if I truly love you
I cannot
I must stand by
My duty I must do
To watch you laugh
 Suffer and grow
Practice at kissing injuries
Offering advice and love
Whenever your spirit is low
I will make mistakes
Please understand that
With this journey we undertake
But whatever happens never forget
You are close to my heart

Carrie Lin R. Jones May 1997©
