For Isaac and Joel

I have memories of childhood
Images of happy times
So scarce I scarcely remember

I look to my children's childhood
Unfolding like a flower
In the warm morning sun

I pray for plentiful memories of play
Of happiness in bloom
No mourning sons.

Always thinking of the long run
A telescopic visionary
Missing the forest for the horizon

Seeking insights into the distant future
I fear being blind to distance
That being absent from the present creates

Lord God grant that I guide
As I walk at your side
And lead my sons as I am lead
