From Mother to Child

Shattered was my heart
When my hopes fell apart
All I wanted was a fresh start,
To find a love that would never part.

Dry were my days, you came flowing like a stream.
With an energy that made everything around me gleam.
In you I see my future, my dream.
And, without you, life has no theme.

I will shower you with love every day, every night.
A love that is deeper than seas, brighter than sunlight.
And I will standby you through all plight.
For your joy is what can make my day bright.

The bond that we share is the key
to unlock our souls and set it free.
So, come, grow old along with me,
The best of our lives is yet to be.

This is my entry for Carry on Tuesday Prompt #36Grow old with me! The best is yet to be.

    Lovely choice of words..I used to write so much poetry when I was small and somewhere along the way I stopped..Maybe I should start with these prompts and see if I get inspired:)

    start again…don’t let the talent go to waste 🙂 do go thru the prompts, they do help a lot when there’s nothing else to get you writing 🙂
