Looking through my old poetry, I found this one from 2003, not long after I originally joined this site.

When you were one
I would watch for hours
As you slept hands above
Head in your Moses bed

Moonbeam rays shining
through curtain seams
Id wonder what
Were your dreams

Did you try to help
Little Bo Peep
Find those sheep

Or were you aglow
Where the teddy bears go

At four youd dream of
Dinosaurs galore
Wed hunt them down
In the magical forest
until we heard them roar, ROAR!

And wed take cover until
They were no-more
As you shot them down with your
Trusty arrows, shield and sword

Then wed find Simba and
Take him back home in
The car jumping for joy
As we ran over Scar

And now youre ten
Our severed bonds
Will soon end as our adventures
Will begin once again!

I acknowledge and appreciate this level of attention and involvement. You wrote this like a song in the key of C -- a positive note to be sure: "Did you try to help/Litle Bo Peep/Find those sheep" what an insightful wonder. Lovely human expression mixed with wit and charm. A very enjoyable read. ~~ DIana

This was a very enjoyable read Andy. Teddy Bears go to Teddy Bear heaven.:)

This is where you excel, Andy. This is by far your best writing. This is powerful and beautifully driven through the passion of a father's love and awe at the gift he has been given through the life of his child and your final stanza speaks of that unbreakable bond. Sebastian will make you proud, now he is his own man. He will be very like you - but, perhaps, a tempered version, more reined in! LOL :)) But, I reckon, when he has a son of his own, THAT will be when he really understands, when your joy will be complete as you start this cycle all over again... YOU MUST WRITE FOR CHILDREN!! This is your strength and your natural, gifted ability. xx

A very special poem brimming over with childhood fantasies and fun. I can't for the life of me understand why a court ordered a ban on this precious poem?? A lovely poem and sweet memories... what could be better! Enjoyed it!
