What will be will be
No pitter-patter of tiny, wee feet No building castles on a sandy beach No tiny hands for to lead and to hold No dressing up as maidens or knights bold. No kisses upon sweet soft downy heads No tucking up into warm cosy beds No nursery rhymes or stories to read No little one's hungry tummy to feed. No wounded soldiers with bruised or grazed knees No teaching how to say thank you or please No guiding girl to woman, boy to man No joys of grandchildren joining the clan. No one to be addressing me as mom No precious, much longed for daughter or son.

Congratulations on your win. A wonderful yet sad story/write. Maybe you need to work with many children not just one/two. God has a plan for you just look for it. Our dreams do not always turn out the way we want them to. Have a blessed day/week.......................

Thank you Paula, I’m afraid It’s too late in life to work with lots of children, having four sisters there were lots of children around back in the day and I had a good relationship with them, baby sitting, trips out etc. Have a blessed day/week yourself too. Belle

Che sera sera! We must make the best of what we have rather than waste resources on what we do not have. I am reminded of the little girl on AFV crying her heart out because she had a crack in her "butt" and wanted a butt without a crack! Che sera sera! Good write! Aloha! Rico

Children form a family. But what has to be we must accept. Sad though.

Sad though it is, coming from a family of five sisters there’s always been children around, lot of nieces and nephews. Thank you Victor ~ Belle

It was sad that’s a fact, but you come to accept that it wasn’t in destiny’s plan. Thank you L ~ Belle

Ouch! This really hurts. A giant bite! Very effective, impactful, yet poignant penning, Belle! ~ Tears on my pillow, Gershon

Gershon, many a tear had to fall yet the heartache fades, I’ve been blessed throughout life in many other ways. Thank you, Belle
