Treasure Island

Michael Gelb

(10/8/40 / NYC-USA)



I can only write this from a male side
As a husband and father with pride

After a man and a woman say the words I do
You may be thinking of children to

After your wife gets pregnant thinking of a girl or boy
At the end of the term you will have a bundle of joy

Children need love and care so does your wife
Whatever the cost from your own life

Take care of your wife, and your children also
With a great deal of love and support they will grow

A good way to write your future is in your name
Treat them right and good and they will do the same

Children are what we need
without children no reason to succeed

Lost money, dropped candy you can replace
How do you do wrong and look into your child’s face

Do good things treat your family well and be proud
Your children will love you and see you glow in a crowd

Children are beautiful and fragile and small
With your help and love they will grow strong and tall

You should protect the children from that first day
Your children should be loved and should grow up okay

If you’re a good father as good as you can be
Your children should be as proud of you as they can be

Time can pass by so fast like in the blink of an eye
Before you know it time will pass by

Your children will carry you into the future
Your children are your future

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
