One Day I Held His Hand

One Day I Held His Hand
.
I held his little hand one day
And he followed right along
Then with childish glee
He'd run from me
And sing his nursery songs
.
Then one day I noticed
He'd learned to tie his shoes
Dress himself although
He missed a button or two
There was less for me to do
.
And ride his bike all day
Like all little boys do
And build a pen outside
To catch a frog or two
Or build a tent and hide
.
He left for school one morning
A bright and sunny day
But was home then by noon
Time slips so fast away
He was gone all too soon
.
I hear the sound of children
In the local grocery store
I see them playing in the sand
Childhood is not forevermore
But lingers the times I held his hand
.

consumertips: Excellent! I admire the way he addresses racial and social issues. However, I see a lot of economical issues that need to be addressed. When is the next time you will be on?

DONUSVET: IMPRESSIVE !!! Heartfelt and stirred our memories on lost childhood ... Memories .. Sweet memories linger on.. Perhaps the loss of a boy child through the passage of time is the ONLY way to introduce a good MAN into the world ... Lost a boy .. gained a MAN

DONUSVET: I had made the assumption that the "boy child " WAS GOOD" and that it carried OVER into his MANHOOD... hence, no repairing needed .. ( simply maintenance ... )

daisiesnfld: But it's THE RAISING that makes them good...the 'maintenance' falls on them. "When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things."

Hagbard Celine: I like this, the rhyme scheme's interesting. And you have a poet's eye for structure, the frame to hang the idea on. I'm reminded (because I think in pop songs) of 7 Years by Lukas Graham and 100 Years by Five for Fighting. You've got a deft grasp of imagery, and as a parent it's very relatable. Well done!
