For My Child

For My Child

A Poem by Tate Morgan

If insight be what you lack then son take it all from me I shall give it to you freely in hopes that you may see




If insight be what you lack

then son take it all from me

I shall give it to you freely

in hopes that you may see


If love is what you should seek

what tales my heart might tell

It has known heights and depths

of the soul as deep as a well


If I could grant precious wisdom

to enlighten your fair sight

I'd say play with your children

teach each how to fly a kite


But learn these old lessons now

while I am here that you might see

For the day will sometime come

when my light shall cease to be


That eve my heart be silent

its music shall play no score

The mind will  go dusk quiet

to be heard from never-more


But heard next day the singing

will float out above the din

The Caroling Angels call

beckoning me to come back in


On that distant fateful morning

I'll stand before them to say

" I washed my soul with happiness

then taught my son to play"

Author's Note

Tate Morgan

For life's time waits on none of us.
It masters fate with earnest callous.
Caring for none in favored mercy.
Helping not who it shows malice.

The times they are a changing .

A outstanding poem. Kids make our life complete and give us reason to do great things. My kids are all big. But my grandsons keep me active and alive. Poem story is very good. Photo made words come alive.

How cute….!!
Rhymes put a little bit restriction
On our freedom of expression….
But it really enhances the beauty of the message we convey……
Really beautiful….
