Outer Hebrides: The children lost

Leave a comment
Poem
Child’s footprint in sand

Children leave deep imprints in your soul
No matter how long they were with you
Or if they only ever were:

could have beens,
almost theres,
come and gones

Their traces
Last forever

Alienated or empty nest
A wish unfulfilled
Or an attempt gone wrong

There are deep footprints
In an empty space
