Robert Edgar Burns Poems
What Is A Son?
A promise of tomorrow.
A namesake shining through.
A bloodline that continues on,
Through eternal springs of youth.
New strength as from a lion.
But, in his softness like a lamb,
Emerges a new warrior,
From this boy now turned a man.
For what is life but battles?
Each new day a victory won.
It takes the courage of a soldier,
To be raised up as a son.
So guard your heart my son, my own.
And always seek out truth.
May this wisdom always stay with you,
When you have left behind your youth.
Swaddled in blue cotton clothing
Encompassed you ...
Eyes Of A Child
The purest form of trust and love
Never will they, deny us hugs.
Joy they bring, to everything,
Craving praise, in all they do,
Harvesting feelings, from me and you!
Little hero’s tug at our heart strings.
Mind’s fully enveloped in fantasies.
They draw us in and tell us how
That we should act
