Poem for my son


By your bedside
A small wooden bird
Guards your soul
While you sleep
Breathing life
Keeping you safe
My shadow-soul.

In your dreams
If your soul is lost
He brings it back
And takes care of you
Until the light of dawn
Signals a new day
And sets you free.

  13. If my mum had presented me, as a young boy, with this tender poem and its symbolic avian, I would have carried it with me for the rest of my life and always felt she were with me, particularly in times of trial. I hope your boy will come to feel a very lucky man.
