What I Want To Leave My Children.

Poetry By: Rowenya

This was inspired by an advert that asked "What do you want to leave your children?" - this is my answer.

Their father's inquisitive spirit, kind

heart and amazing inner strength.

Their mother's sense of adventure, love

of nature and adoration of reading.

Their father's capacity to love without

conditions, his hair and his height.

Their mother's eyes, courage, sense

of fairness and determination.

Their father's head for numbers, love

of the stars and continual questioning of the world around him.

Their mother's enjoyment of history,

way with words and ability to stand up for what's right.

Their father's patience, great cooking skills,

love of compost heaps and zest for life.

Their mother's love of languages, sense of humour

and ability to express her feelings in writing.

That's what I want to leave my children.
