~ The Grand Creator ~
If you ever wonder, ever doubt,
What this big world is all about.
If you question life, if you really need to know,
When the morning sun streams through your window,
And you catch your breath at the glow of your child.
Laughing and hugging the softest sweetest baby kitten,
The answers can be found, you know where it is written.
Just sit very still and watch everything that is great get even greater,
Then you just have to know the answer is….we do have a Grand Creator!
Poem; Eileen Clark 2018
I stayed in the bedroom, the one at top of the stairs
It was my uncles when he was young and had few cares
He’s in the army now serving far away from his home
His mom and dad, my grandparents, live here alone
I’m now in his bedroom spending time by myself
Either looking at the big ticking clock on the shelf
Or staring out my window at the house across the way
The one with blue shutters and no children their to play
Grandma and grandpa don’t have any swings,
They don’t have any pets, don’t even have toys,
I brought my doll, my jacks and a few other things
On this street live only the old, no other girls and boys
I’m back in the bedroom staring out my window into space
Rising from the edge of my bed, oh dear, I can’t be certain
It looks to me to be a slight shadow of a girls face
Peering out the blue shuddered window between the curtain
Is this my imagination of something I wanted a whole bunch
Mama always say’s I daydream and pretend way too much
Then I see her smile, she moves, her eyelashes flutter
At last I have a playmate in the house next door with blue shutters

One of the very important things as a parent to do is
always pay attention to what your child is telling you.
