Oh, My Child, My Child

Published by at 9:50 am under poetry,Uncategorized

My son is the greatest

Child in the world


He’s driving me crazy

Causing me pain

Anxiety and frenzy.


My son fills my heart

With unbound joy


From the times he’s causing it to split

Tearing it in two

Or boring a hole through it.


I cry sometimes

From the innocent

Wisdom that crosses his lips

I cry sometimes

Feeling impotent

To stop the inevitable eclipse


Oh, my son, my son

Do you know that everyday

I face the trial of Avraham

Oh, my child, my child

Will we too find that

Elusive ram hiding in the wild?


Oh, My Son, My Child

My Love, My Gift

My hope,

My Trial
