Thought maybe we’d try a sonnet this week. Shakespearean, more or less, but the subject is a little less traditional.
There is a place for each of you, and more
In the depth of my ever-growing heart
Away from prying eyes, I’ll keep you for
My memories. Nostalgic, and apart
From living life, each moment as I may,
I will recall the times that brought me joy
As well savour heartache, clutch cherished pain
Each artistic scrawl and forgotten toy
An instant on the path from then to now
An on into the dreams and years ahead
The paths you’ll take, the choices showing how
You’ll walk a winding path of thrill and dread.
To lives and families you’ll build. I’ll see,
With bursting heart, just what you’ll come to be.by
