I wrote a verse back in May last year about my son having a brace fitted to his teeth which you can read here....the-world-of-dental-braces.html
Today he had it taken off...... so I wrote a poem about it........
It did all turn out fine
the boy he never moaned or gave a whine
After a year and a half the brace came off
he's now excited about all the food he can scoff
I am so proud as he has coped so well
he's followed the rules even on the days when it felt like hell
Check ups, he went for every single one
and now at the final one it's vanished all gone
It's been worth it as his teeth they are straight
and not too long having to wait
The time has flown, it doesn't seem that long
since I wrote the first verse, willing him to be strong
Now he is free of a mouth full of metal
I'm going to celebrate with a brew, where's the kettle?
For now he wants to chew some gum as that's what he's missed
and biting into an apple, well who couldn't resist
It came off so quick, snipped off in a flash
all stacked up and ready for the trash
Happy now with a smile so sweet
after eighteen months the task is complete
Thank you for reading today
join me again tomorrow for
Free From Friday
but for now....
