A Single Child I Am... - Poem by Ann Mary Thomas

A single child i am,
in my lovely nest,
with my loving dad and mom.

A single child i am,
flowing in the oceans of love
with loneliness all around.

My ways are haunted,
My talks are monologues,
My dreams are aimless,
A single child i am.

No hands to hold me,
No chocolates to share with,
No toys to fight for,
A single child i am.

A single child i am,
with sacks of love to give,
with lots of care to express,
with more of happiness to share,
A single child i am.
