A Child's Eyes - Poem by Holly Jamestone

Can you look into A Child's Eyes
And tell her you are leaving
For pipe dreams of a soulmate
Who's waiting in the wings?

Can you gaze into A Child's Eyes
While shouting at your mate
Showing an impatience
That comes across as hate?

Can you glance into A Child's Eyes
And tell him his new father
Is no one whom he cares for
As his heart forever stings?

Can you watch A Child's Eyes cry
Welling with the tears
That never will erase a bond
A family builds for years?

Can you look into A Child's Eyes
The day your family ends
The fear, the pain, the fallout
And ever make amends?

If parents would align as one
And power struggles ended
If hearts were light and joy returned
And bitterness were mended

The woe would slowly fade and then
A Child's Eyes that you'd see
Would fill with hope in knowing you're
An intact family

    Good questions and a lovely thought. But life and our human flaws so often spoil the dream, but it never spoils the love of a parent and their child. (Report) Reply
