Pass the parcel, Hide and Seek,
Pin the Tail on the Donkey — don’t you peek.
Laughing children — some unknown.
Lots of adults — hear them drone.
Lots of presents — lots of fun?
Maybe not for the little one.
His grandfather’s happy, but he looks sad.
I’m his nanny. What he needs is his dad.
I saw a tall man. He looked like Scott,
But he’s left the party so maybe not.
Where is his father? Does he care?
I pray one day Scott’s life he’ll share.
Until then I’ll mind him and when I’m done
My dearest hope: father finds son.
