Ode To My Beloved

I love you little children.
It is evident from the glow in my eyes.

When you cry.
So do I.

When you laugh.
So do I.
You tell the sweetest jokes.

No matter what I do,
you forgive me.
You say “mommy, it’s ok”.

I can count on you.
You always give honest advice.
And you’re a great listener.

You’ve been a major pillar of strength
on days when I didn’t feel like getting out of bed.

You’re my brave, strong heroes
Though you say I am yours.
You’re the best presents God has ever given me.
