About the Poem
This is a poem I wrote for my children, my son, four and my daughter, six. They were staying with their daddy over the weekend and I was constantly thinking about them and missing them more and more. There are so many things they have done and said that has brightened up my every day. Thinking about them helps me realize just how much I love them and am so happy that they are the biggest, most wonderful part of my life.
My Little Girl, My Little Boy
|A single tear,
that love bears no boundaries.
A simple touch,
to wrap my arms around you.
Within your smiles
my heart embraces,
Within your laughter
my heart caresses your joy.
In every story you have to tell me,
In everything you do in play,
In everything you dream to see,
I love you more for this each day.
In every way you want for the spotlight,
In everything that you must bear,
With every day you learn wrong from right,
I look inside myself -
I see a child who was once there.
Let me dry the tears that hold you in sadness,
Let me hold you in your joy,
Let me show you all I know in lovliness,
I shall love you forever.
My little girl, my little boy,
Unconditional love for you forever,
My little girl, my little boy.
