A Sentimental Journey - Poem by V. T. Allsop

Before you part for overseas
I hold you for a while
Moments will my heart appease
As you leave this fair isle
Captivating eyes of blue
and your endearing smile
Baby boy can this be true?
My thoughts you do beguile
May you grow as life accords
Each milestone to succeed
As health and happiness affords
Love surrounding your every need
Time and tide bids Au Revoir
Until you return to see
The isle where you were born
England's shore and me.
