Sheye Thought for the Day (May 12) (30) RE: Thought for the Day (May 12) 14 May 99


To My Grown Up Son

My hands were busy through the day,
I didn't have the time to play
The little games you asked me to,
I didn't have much time for you.
I'd wash your clothes, I'd sew and cook,
But when you'd bring your picture book
And ask me please to share your fun
I'd say "A little later, Son."
I'd tuck you in all safe at night,
Hear your prayers, turn out the light,
Then tiptoe softly to the door,
I wish I'd stayed a minute more.
For life is short, the years rush past,
A little boy grows up so fast.
No longer is he at your side,
His precious secrets to confide.
The picture books are put away,
There are no children's games to play.
No goodnight kiss, no prayers to hear,
That all belongs to yesteryear.
My hands once busy now lie still,
The days are long and hard to fill,
I wish I might go back and do
The little things you asked me to.
