[Poetry] Temporary Eternity

They say it’s only temporary
Soon I’ll see mommy and daddy
They’re just going on a trip
I wonder where they’d go
Maybe they’re on a big ship
I wish I could go though
I guess I’m too small
Still, it won’t be long
Till I’m big and strong
I’ll see mommy and daddy again…

How much longer?
I’ve gotten bigger/ stronger
Why have you left me here?
You do not love me!
Otherwise, you’d be here
And set me on your knee
And tell me stories
Of your trip together…

Someone lied!
They’re not coming back
Perhaps they even died.
Regardless, I’ll take it in stride
There’s little keeping me here
Quick! While no one’s near!
I’ll sneak out of here tonight
Something just isn’t right
They pick and prod
This place needs to be outlawed
Who keeps someone away
From his family!

[Poetry] Mother’s Lullaby

Hush, sleep, little baby
Close your eyes
May your dreams be filled
With adventures and thrills.
The moon gives you an embrace
The stars kiss your sweet face,
And when the night is done
Share your dreams with the sun.
I’ll be seeing you
On this day coming soon
But for now
I must say adieu,
You’ll find me in the next room
Someday, your dreams will bloom.
Don’t fear if terrors grab at your feet
This night you can complete.
So, good night, I’ll see you soon,
No need to be so blue
Wonderful dreams I wish for you,
Love you.
