Sweet as a child, was my mother's warm embrace Sweet it felt, when old granny fussed and pampered Sweet, was the tender look on doting mom's face Sweet was the food that her loving hands prepared. Sweet was childhood when the fun would never end Sweet was the innocence of us impish friends. Sweet was our school girls gang, our girly mischief Sweet was, mock anger of teachers, our relief. Sweet was, discussing teenage heartaches, crushes Sweet was the vision of future, dreams in eyes Sweet were the secrets shared, talked in voiced hushes Sweet was taste of success, it felt very nice. Sweet were golden years spent studying college Sweet, how it gave career a triumphant edge. Sweet are the memories of my student life Sweet, how we enjoyed and partied without strife! Sweet was, first step in holy matrimony Sweet was his reassuring hand at altar Sweet,our first journey, in nature's harmony Sweet, mushy corner of heart, love could enter! Sweet was on my face, the expectant mum's glow Sweet angelic baby girl, joy overflows! Sweet lil sibling, cute brother,she has today Sweet is the feeling I get, with love, they play! 14/7/2012

    This is a lovely poem, but sweet does continue. Sweet is the feeling when my grandchildren come to me for a cuddle.
