Saying Goodbye To Very Young Children

Poem By John Updike

I love you
I give you my heart, my life
I expect nothing in return
No diamonds, no pears, no riches.
No moon, no stars, no skies
I leave them to the poor poets
whose hearts cry without love.
Just hold me tight in your arms
and simply say to me this -
I love you too, my sweet heart.
That's all I want, love, love
I live on love.
