We Worry About Our Children - Poem by David Boyce

We worry about our children.

We worry about our children,
Every single minute of the day,
Because we really love them,
In a very special way.

They think we are over protective,
When we ask them to call,
But we need to know they are safe,
We are their parents after all.

They never realise how precious they are,
Like uncut diamonds to a jeweller,
We only ask them questions,
Because we really care.

Sometimes when they go out at night,
Perhaps drinking with their friends,
Because they are not returning home tonight,
Our nerves are at whit’s end.

So if your parents ask you where you’re going,
The information you should share,
They need to know you are really safe,
Because they always truly care.
