Poem: Children

(Written for my oldest brother and his first wife back in 2000)


From the big tummy,
To the old body
They are your kids.

From the first cut,
To the last heartbeat,
They are your children.

With your love and theirs,
Once connected never parting,
From being a child to having one,
You and them will never leave each others hearts.
