Will You Walk A Mile With Me, My Child? - Poem by David Keig

Will you walk a mile with me, my child?
Will you walk a mile with me?
Will you give some time to me, my child?
Will you give some time to me?
Will you think about me when I’m gone?
What will be that memory?
Will the day when those first words you spoke
Be as clear for you as me?
Will the joy we felt at Christmas time
Counting needles on the tree
Bring a gladness glow within your heart
That’s as warm for you as me?
Will the time your magic castle broke
Bring a smile for you as me?
When I am gone these memories
Will be yours – no longer mine
That’s the gift that’s left by all of us
It’s a giving of our time.

    Your poems about you children very much reflect the life intinct as opposed to those about your poems about adult relationships Brilliant (Report) Reply
