Hyndland Secondary School: Liam Galbraith

 

 

For Lily...

So small
So warm
A little sun
With a fiery heart
This petite being
Will become
A burning flame

Tap Tap Tap
her minute feet on the floor
barely make an impression
Not knowing
About the huge world around
But increasing her knowledge
Focused only
on the most banal
Wondering what
Its all about

Loved and cared for
Never left alone
Stopped before danger
But never kept from a step forward

A growing soul
Ready to face the world
Ready to become herself
Ready to be what ever she wants to be
She’s ready
To live
