5/1/2017 A gift of love from and to my sons
These small and vibrant lives
in my charge,
my heart latches to them
as a limpet,
but they are mine to lead where I will.
These lives, these hearts of mine,
I am dedicated to their preservation.
I shine brighter and brighter
as they grow and prosper and learn...
their successes are my legacy.
How I love them!
These dark brown eyes looking up at me
framed by cherubim cheeks
which must be kissed,
which must be held with love,
with soul and heart.
These minds and loves alive with light!
May my Father's blessing
carry them through life strongly and surely
until the end of their days.
