Senryu – To my son

Franz 1 bwso young and sweet
growing up you learned it’s hard
to stay innocent

being sensitive
empathtic in a hard world
you suffer

mother’s cry for youth
without showing their tears
smiling they encourage

we’ve all been little
yet I still fear for the young
innocence betrayed

remembering you
your joyful laugh and play
wish I could’ve stopped time

    • He’s now quite a handsome young man. Each of my sons have of course gone through all the troubled growing up period of love and life. One tends to think back when they were so young and carefree!
