Some Day - Poem by Della Perry

Dear, you are so far away from us
Are you thinking of home?
The busy Dudley town adorned with stalls
Do you miss the sellers chants and calls?
Our street, the houses and bungalows so neat
Gorgeous gardens, so petite, it was always your favourite retreat
Do you think of hot dinners, smell Sunday roasts?
Oh Nanna, she so loves to boast.
The faces of people, known, unknown,
Pleasant folk seen all around.

Dear, you are so far away from us
Are you thinking of home?
The busy, bustling Dudley pubs
The empty glasses, the cigarette stubs
The cheerful, friendly Dudley folk
The sound of laughing from the hilarious joke
Oh, child we wish you were home
Not far away all alone
We understand you are making your own way
We pray homely thoughts will bring you back someday.

    Well penned the longing for the loved ones to return home.children have to get out of the sheltered wings and build their future .we have to accept that reality and pray for their progress. Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply
