I wanted to write a poem on parenthood.
I sent it to a friend in an email many years ago,
He thought I hadn’t written it, but I had.
It wasn’t finished, though.
Couldn’t get the ending right.
Kept trying and trying
And it never seemed to fit.
That was years ago.
I still don’t have it quite right.
It’s just the end bit, really.
Maybe if I send it to you, you could have a read?
