I Will Never Ask You

Updated: Jan 29

By Larry Chamberlin, 23 February 2015


There are so many things

you will stumble over

as you forge ahead

without me into the future.


Life deals heavy blows

and doesn't wait until

you are ready for them -

usually just the opposite.


You must have the freedom

to discover these sorrows

though I'd like to shield you.


How much less you'd be

if I asked you to give them up

and stay sheltered in my arms.
