North East Child

Can’t promise you won’t go hungry,

nor that you won’t be sad,

can’t promise to keep you safe

from heartbreak, or from breaking bad.

All I can promise is warmth and love,

my North East child, my little sweetheart,

like a lighthouse you’re a beacon

to new beginnings, apple of my eyes –

the one who knows me inside-out.
