I love you little children; it is clear
from the glow in my eyes how much
you mean to me when you cry, so do I
when you laugh, it brings me joy
you tell the sweetest jokes.
No matter what I do, you forgive me
you say, “mommy, it’s ok” I can count
on you to always give me your honest opinion,
and you’re skilled listeners, too.
You’ve both been great pillars of strength
on days when I didn’t feel like getting
out of bed; you’re my brave heroes,
and the best presents God has given me.
