tender care

August 11, 2009

I have received tender care
Looking back I see people
Little things that meant a lot
Ina Reed was her name
The game was “tiddlywinks”
There was focused attention
Love at five years old
My mother left her children
Four of us she forgot
Secret friends came to help
I know not their names
Friends were the surprise
When I decided to seek
Their kindness drew me
No one told me how to live
They showed me with their life
Seeing is better than words
I wanted to know
