A Parent's Wish? - Poem by C H Sund

Grow up little one, the world awaits…
but stay awhile first.

Grow up wise, learn to fly…
but slowly please.

Spend some time with those you love…
for they love you so.

Hold your blankie, hold it tight…
just a little longer.

Call out for your Mommy, Daddy too…
they will comfort you.

Feel the soothing warmth, the arms around…
of a loving hug.

Grow up little one…
but stay awhile first.

    Oh, the precious first years of childhood. How poignantly and succinctly (the couplet form works superbly here) you express every parent's wish - to savor every second of their children's time at home. The repetition of 'stay awhile' in the first and final stanzas is perfect. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report)Reply
