I Have Told You Many Stories - Poem by Daleen Enslinstrydom
Time with you was always well spent,
I have told you many stories
we had a special kind of bond
You were my firstborn,
we have shared a lot of things
and I have told you tales about
dwarfs, elves and fairies in the garden
and knight slaying dragons
and fables of King Arthur
and the Knights of the Round Table.
Together we travelled with Odysseus
on his odyssey and met a lot of mermaids
while we travelled with the Vikings on the north sea.
I have told you legacies of pirates and thieves,
of Robin Hood who stole from the rich
for the benefit of the poor.
We have read through many books,
through the fables of the brothers Grimm,
Snow White and Cinderella
and the tales of Hans Christopher Anderson.
Together we studied Greek mythology
and I also do share your love for Egyptology,
and there are the new heroes: Superman, Iron-man,
Batman and Robin and Spiderman
that you do admire
and to you they could always save the world
but today I do stand guilty before you my son,
as what did I tell you about the greatest hero of them all,
that still lives today?
Today I do tell you about Jesus
the brave man of Golgotha
that carried the cross
of the sins of the world for all of us
and resurrected He is coming
as the King in earth's last days.
