Shoe At Roadside - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

A miscarriage; a little red shoe at roadside;
Keen for action, bidding for attention.
A little shoe that sure has lots of adventures
To tell of its young master;
Of visitations to the supermarket
With daddy when I got lost among
The toys department Tarzan collections,
Of refreshing exercises
In the school grass field
In the first light of morn,
Of trips to the movie when I had
Hugged daddy tight when a horror
Face had appeared,
Of the chase in the park for
The fun of scarrying away the birds.
Tears trickle down my cheeks brought
On by a lost child; the same shoe size!
