Children of My Heart
Children of My Heart - Print of collage with green tissue and leaves
I was born with extra feelings,
Of this I am quite sure -
For each time I think of one of you,
My full heart wants to burst..
I remember each of your births,
As though it were today -
And the joy I felt inside
When in my arms you lay.
I know parental love
Is the strongest love of all
But the bond I feel with each of you
Makes even wealth seem rather small.
Each of you is so unique;
You're so special in different ways -
You each seek different things,
Always filling up your days.
I know you'll each be great,
Whatever path you choose
And when life's trials challenge you
To them you'll never lose.
Some of you may be too young
To understand the love in my heart,
And the sorrow that I feel
When it's too long we've been apart.
But as each of you keeps growing
And you sometimes feel confused -
Don't EVER feel alone,
For I love EACH of you.
