Children these days.
- C. J. Black
They grow way too fast these days
Her story must be told
All those happy days together – for them I give praise
When I’m feeling lonely – this photograph which I hold
Has framed in it many memories
Which I carry with me daily
To add to this I gather around me her many child accessories
Thoughts of her are with me constantly.
She moved house many moons ago
It must be said – against my better wishes
To set up home with her beaux
Both were young and free – probably overly ambitious
But there comes a time when we must cut the cord
Allowing them the freedom to find their place in the world
Hoping that their faith in you will someday be restored
That when eventually we both embrace – a flag of peace will be unfurled.
