Treasure Island

(5th October 1960 / Abercynon, Rhondda Cynon Taff)

Fear And Reality

I always knew the time would come,
To face it all again,
I always knew deep in my heart,
That fate would call your name.
Can't bear to see you go away,
Forever on my mind,
Praying for your safe return,
This war is so unkind!
If only I could turn back time,
To when you were a child,
Escape this dark reality,
My fears are running wild!
I'll think of you each moment,
Until your work is done,
I'll be forever by your side,
Come home safe my Son x

    We are never at rest until we see our loved
    faces again. Freedom comes at a price and
    we all must sometimes pay. This touched my
    heart. A passionate write. (Report) Reply

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,
