The Writer's Voice

The World's Favourite Literary Website

To Mom and Dad


Alice C. Bateman

ďThank you for having meĒ

How very true

ĎCause you are my parents

I came here through you


The stars were aligned

One particular day

And a girl-child named Alice

Was well on the way


To this planet of suffering

Anger and strife


Thank you for this life


Iíve learned many lessons

Iím still learning more

I look to tomorrow

To open new doors


A path to the future

Lies shining and clear

With your help and Godís

I will walk without fear


Thank you for having me...
