For Love Of A Child

For love of a child, a heart was stilled A pledge to his son had been fulfilled A promise that although apart He'd be there always in his heart For love of a child, a father gone His baby left to carry on Without his strong and caring dad To share the times they should have had For love of a child, he risked it all To protect his little one so small Gave everything that he could give He died so that his child could live

    Very kind of you to say Gwen. Sometimes you see a picture that just grabs you and you have to write something. That is what happened here.

    Thank you Sara. It would have made more sense if I could have posted the picture that was the inspiration for the poem. You can see it at my blog at oldmainer.wordpress.com if you are interested.
