Today is Day 18 of Lovuary. I have chosen for my prompt today, the joy of seeing your children in love. I wrote this poem in 2012 about my eldest son and his then partner. Sadly it did not last but that is love, that is life. The day I mention here is a day full of love .
They burst in through the back gate like a summer breeze.
Just the sight of their togetherness is enough to make me feel at ease.
Laughing at the back door as I opened it looking for the keys.
Dropping in for lunch on route to a holiday,
Full of noisy chatter and lots of things to say.
Lunch was a joint effort for the four of us a treat .
Including all types of food it really was quiet a feat .
Talking loud’ well that always was his way
But that does not worry her they seem like friends at play!
We were not expecting them they’d rang the night before to say
That they would be dropping in today
For a break on their way.
It was great to have a catch up so good for us all to meet.
To see your children with their partners is really something sweet.
Then with much a commotion forgetting this and that .
They are gone in a flash forgetting a hat.
Then all was quiet the hurricane past
Driving off waving to their holiday at last
Be happy, be loving to each other be true.
