Winter reflections

Dedicated to children

 

Snowflakes fall outside

while logs are added to the fire.

We watch them burn to ashes

with presents by our side.

The music of the season

is festive, gay and bright

and you are the main reason

why happiness has settled in my heart.

A mother full of pride

would like the world to know

you’re such a special boy.

I am aware that snowflakes

are not white everywhere,

but children have not chosen where they’re born

and yet they’re the most precious things of all.

A child should never go hungry,

or suffer any fear,

or lack what is most dear…

kindness and a toy.

We should all be able to give him

true love each day of the year

and our heart full of joy.

Autumn reflections

To Carla Rufas Qui, IEMER student (in memoriam)

The sky is bright, full of so many shades of red,

the trees are changing colour

while leaves fall everywhere

and then I think of you and my heart melts.

I need you by my side, child,

but you can’t see or understand

the emptiness you left one day in me.

You can’t, I can.

But as I walk around the garden

I notice that nature always has its ways,

I know when all seems hopeless

that the greenness of next spring

will give trees new life and breath.

The rain will fall softly and gently

and will open my eyes and show

the power of nature in all its glow,

so I walk and walk under these autumn trees

while you fill up my thought and dreams.

You, lovely child, though closer to autumn than to spring,

will help fill my heart with love and understanding

until new colours cause the birds to sing.
