If Up Was Down

If Up Was Down

A Poem by Baz

A poem written for my son, who turned one year old this month.

If up was down
And left was right
And big was small
And day was night

If good was bad
And high was low
And near was far
And fast was slow

If more was less
And in was out
And here was there
And north was south

If rich was poor
And young was old
And wet was dry
And hot was cold

If loud was soft
And short was long
And yes was no
And right was wrong

If all these things
Were somehow true
Unchanged would be
My love for you...

That sounds like the real love of a father to me. Your ending is filled with an emotional impact that goes beyond words. A great poem.

This is an excellent heartfelt write that I'm sure you're son will grow to love. It brought a tear to my eye and made me wish i'd written a bit more for my kids over the years. I've briefly read through a few of your poems and my conclusion is that you have an amazing talent for children's writing...my own would love much of it and I'll be sure to show them it once the summer hols are over and we're home more.
Cheers for checking out my work too, thought I'd swing by as a quick thank you until I have a bit more spare time. Your son is very cute by the way and I see, from his top, you are currently going through the peppa pig stage that I am only just recovering from, (my youngests 7 in a fortnight and she's into 'deadly 60' at the minute... though she occasionally regresses!) Take care for now, spence
