There is no end without a start
You’ll find your meaning in your heart.
Just give it time and you will thrive
When kindness comes and affection stives.
In the end we all want the same
Endless love in all its name.
When in this world and feeling alone
Just find that place you feel at home.
Once you’re there don’t ever forget
That you can help those who aren’t there yet.
A tearful goodbye before we part
You’re off to study it’s a brand new start.
Go learn some more and become who you want
There is nothing you can’t achieve because you’re my son.
It’s the time to shine above the rest
However you try i’ll know it’s your best.
When you return from your your exam
I’ll bake you some scones with bread and jam.
To make 2 years youv been away
Knowing you will prosper with every passing day.
Time is ticking as you rush by
No time to talk or wonder why.
City life is fast and speedy
With people on the pavement who are so needy.
Concrete blocks set heavy in stone
To make lots of money for your outstanding loan.
This shirt and tie you wear everyday
Gets you promoted while your family takes delay.
Spreadsheets and charts and meetings apart
Gets levels of stress off to a early start.
All this time your nose to the ground
With nothing to hear apart from that busy office sound.
I see a man on his knees
Praying for forgiveness and begging please.
Don’t take them away i love them to much
Just bring them back with your godfelt touch.
They breath on machines while i sit here and wait
My mind is so numb while my thoughts are in debate.
They are so young i don’t understand
Why they must suffer and i still stand.
Four days later they are awake
I feel so humbled my tears now break.
Now knowing i am with them to get them through
Thank you for your love since the prayers i begged of you.
Dear child of mine where did the years go
Your twenty three now but i was gone long ago.
I chose other things to keep me away
Its was never you that couldn’t get me to stay.
It was all my fault what i decided to do
Another man i loved said he wouldn’t take me and you.
One day when you find me and i hope that you do
I can sit there and talk and give you the answers you are due.
I just hope your decisions are so better than mine
And if you have a family too that you don’t leave them like i.
When is it right to judge without being critical
You just want to help but appear hypocritical.
The craving of baring a meaningful phrase
Has people talking of you as though you’re a disgrace.
We let illusions filter the norm
And life is distorted in erroneous form.
We think if we give we must want in return
Of something more valuable than of things we can learn.
Pretentious puppetry actions from personality to person
Feeding the fakeness to our next generation.
Remember humanity was a mark of respect
Is it social media of the internet that could make us forget.
