 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.


Another chapter



Another chapter has opened before me

another moment when my world has been changed

nothing will be the same each morning I wake

and at sunset I can only welcome down the rain.

In this chapter there will be no future horizons

there will be no more reaching for the stars

now is the time for honest reflection

to understand a life that is scarred.

My children treat me as though I never existed

yet no one will tell me why this is so?

My beautiful grandson as been torn from my life

and his sister I’ll never get to know.

So this chapter will hold little happiness

there will be no more smiling faces to see

except those I hold dear deep in my heart

those memories that still hold onto me.
