Very nicely written Nan...sometimes we have to let them fly on their own winds As the old saying goes "There are but two special gifts we can give our children: one of them is roots, the other is wings"

Listening to every heart
Thank you all - sincerely - This poem seems a bit light-hearted, but in reality - My two girls are the "Sunshine" of my life - and they're certainly my greatest success - even more than my poetry, caroline. I raised them alone, and I humbly say that I did it well... This poem actually is one of my personal favorites..... Thanks again, all..
In the space between moments
I have a little wooden chest, Within I keep my treasure's blessed, Four locks of hair, when first was shorn, Two boys, two girls, to us were born, Now they've grown and moved away, But in wood chest, will ever stay.
Beautiful poem Nan....
