The Seed


It's there forever in your heart.

A tiny seed of joy. 

Your hopes and dreams 

and plans and schemes.

A future gone so fast. 

Stolen, taken, empty now. 


An ocean of tears to sail. 

A storm inside with crashing waves,

Tossed and turned 

and crashed and burned. 

Heart forever broken. 

Time will heal, it's no big deal. 


6 years on it's still the same. 

Changed my life forever. 

Pink or blue

I never knew.

Memories in a cardboard box. 

The future gone forever.


But then I look at what I have got.

So perfect and such treasure.

Their hopes and dreams,

Their plans and schemes.

A future there forever.

Love, pride and more beside.

Laura - A very sensitive subject, that must have been difficult to write about. I hope that you found the process cathartic in some way. Your pain comes through in the words, which are extremely well written and obviously heartfelt. I sympathise and commend at the same time.
