King is born

King is born

the glass filleth with love


hope as a new one is born
a replica to remind us
of lost ones,
as their memory returns…

that you have taken the initiative
to bless the couple
so let the world also know,

the rich life that lies ahead


the burden that also will lie
on this new born’s head


as he awaits his turn
he surely will leave a legacy in return

to seed more happiness and love
for those who will
later on lead the world….

A pipe dream that maybe by the time this future King is due to take up his position as King there may be a changed world.
If only the leaders of today could see what their greed will do if continued and the ripples it sends out across the world.
We can live in hope, but I have always said that if all that is left is Hope then we are in so much trouble. To me Hope is a negative word more of a dream of what if, hope is the last thing we need for a future we need to have a word that means TO DO, where people get off their asses and start to make a world worth living in.
I am taking my soap box back into the cave , and just say "Have a great life oh future King"

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

as you say Ian
