Poem to unborn grandchild

My country was so pleasant, a habitation in heaven,
geraniums, jasmines, serenades, dates for lovers,
our hands were created to create and hug people,
we laughed at our faults, kept silent when we won,
the rain was star-sent, the neighbourhood a feast,
the angels, kids and snakes protected our houses,
the father instead of mourning his hero son, he run
with raffle and cross of life to continue the son’s strife.

Suddenly, unborn grandkids, everything disfigured,

banks and hyenas invaded your house, alas,
bulldozers broke the dolls, ruined the garden
no fruits, flowers, crops have been saved for you,
with no milk, you’ll be born underweight; I was inert
in the night the predator digged the prison and escaped,
one day perhaps you find your house ruined by bombs*.
smoke may rush in your crib to take away your breath
oh, whoever survives don’t listen to me, keep away,
being corrupted I destroyed and dissolved my beauty;
build up a new nest, away from the waters I polluted.

Greedily I have eaten the chocolates they gave me,

now me an old man I enjoy slowly the few remaining,
few, such as my hours and my soul-mate friends,
for empty and foolish I no longer have time or tolerance.

Onward grandchildren: oxygen, soil, hold the flag

generate a sweet home from the body of truth.

When you feel a hand rest upon your Mum,
And you hear the sound of a low deep hum,
I hope you know, and to yourself think gladly,
This touch and voice is of my Daddy.

It’s still early days but you’ve got my heart,

And I know that this is just the start,
Because from now on and forevermore,
I will love you, cherish you, and always adore.

Every day my love for you grows,

And I hope to you this already shows,
I will do everything I can to make you see,
That you will always mean the world to me.

And from today until the day you’re born,

I swear to keep the oath I’ve sworn,
You and Mum will always be cared for,
Protection is the oath I swore.

Not just to protect, but to always love,

Because you were a gift from above,
I never thought I would feel this way,
But now I can’t wait until next May.

For when the day that you arrive,

I would have never before felt so alive,
You’ll bring a tear straight to my eye,
And you’ll look at me and you’ll know why.

Because you will be the greatest gift,

And my heart and soul you will uplift,
That feeling there will be hard to beat,
From that moment on my life’s complete.

But for now you sleep inside your Mummy,

Keep warm and snug inside her tummy,
And I’ll look forward to the day you’re here,
To take my heart when you appear.

So when you feel that hand on Mum,

And hear the sound of my low deep hum,
I know you’ll know and for that I’m glad,
That here with Mum is your very proud Dad.
