Heart in Hand

  • I am here, heart in hand, ready to share time and poems ith anyone who will give me the time in their day.

Heart in Hand

She stood there in  front of me
Weeping into her hands
As if her heart was broken
And I am sure it was
Most little girls do
Get their hearts broken
When the big kids 
Won't let them play
Her little legs can't keep up as...
The cousins take off for the playroom
Locking her out when they get there
It is hard being two years old
Knocking on the door softly
Then the knocks getting harder
Desperation sets in when....
When she realizes
They are not listening !
Calling out, finally crying,
Screaming "Let me in....."
She only wants to be included, but
At two, you are not always welcome...
You slow things down,
You tell on them,when you are two
You are not old enough.
Standing in "Gama's" room
Sobbing, her face in your hands
Tears pouring out between her fingers
She hears the lock click
The lock from the playroom door
Admittance has been granted
She is allowed into the inner sanctom
And... All is right with the world....

I loved this... Sometimes now as an adult with some people I feel locked out.... But I like it... Love and peace Redbloodink

being left out, to be included is all anyone of us wants, too bad growing up really doesn't change things, big boys and girls still cry inside.

Poetry is what is lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
