Me And The Boy

Me and the boy

Walking side by side

Along the stoney river bank.

Not too far,

Not too close,

My heart says let him go.

He has to venture, must dare

Must wander further away

If he is ever

To wander anywhere.

How much of my experience

Do I dare impart

Before he shuts me out

And I get

“Hey, old man. I’ve heard it all before”.

So much more

I would tell you

To spare you the grief

That I have known.
