Child’s Valentine

The soul is like a single parent
Of a thriving dying child
Who must be fed and changed
Educated and not spoiled
All on a limited amount
Of love and resources
Because the soul too must search
For its lost teachers and friends
In the bewildering world
Of feelings and mistakes it seems
Already arranged for itself
Just to come home every night
Eat supper and sing
The child to sleep
