For the Children


I have seen sunsets bless my soul

The epitome of being whole

I have Felt the rain

Through my golden mane

I have walked bare feet

Never missing a beat

Upon this earth



Until....... I gave Birth

 

It was You, You and You

 

You are exquisitely talented girls

A miracle....... my Precious pearls

And now with every breath of my soul

I shelter you from the whole

Protecting you from the rain

Stroking your golden manes

As I walk bare feet

never missing a beat

Upon this earth


My Rebirth

I understand this poem. My kids are older and now I have my grandchildren. We learn real love after we embrace our child for the first time. Thank you for sharing the beautiful photo and amazing poetry.

Anytime my dear
This is beautiful. From the elegant flow of the poem to the loveliness expressed in each word, this poem was near perfect. I especially liked the line "It was You, You, and You." Great job on this poem.

This is so sweet. The simple blessings that we take for granted are not lost on children. They just love the adventure of it all. Blessed you are to see it through them and get it experience it all again.

This poem is lovely and touching. I like the reflection in the second half of the ideas presented in the first. Your love for your children is very evident in this poem, and reading it made me smile. Thank you for sharing this! Beautiful work!

Thank you for your kind words. I really appreciate the feedback. Blessings El
Yes! That feeling that flows through you is the strongest first thing in the morning when you first see their faces. It is almost like seeing them for the first time. I think it's a mommy thing.

Absolutely,Thank your for reading my work. :)
I understand that feeling of care for a child as I had worked with children at a daycare center and oh my goodness, they are just precious. Of course there are other kids that makes it harder for them to be loved, but I remember a seminary teacher told me about his kids that he loves them, but on some days, he struggles to like them. Keep writing!

My childhood memories are filled with stories in spoken word. My Mother and Grandmother always told us tales. I honestly can't remember my mother ever reading to me. I have done the same for my kid.. more..
