My Children
My Children

My children, my world, my life are the same
I knew how to love, the moment they came
Into my world and smiled at me
Oh what a feeling of love it can be
Watching then grow through out the years
Laughing and crying and sharing our tears
Playing and fighting and helping each other
Watching their faces, I am a proud mother.
Times of trial we've been through
Good times and bad times and even new
Hardship and losess have haunted our lives
Hurting and cutting us up like sharp knives
But for all of the bad, the good has out done
For together we ignited a cold dying sun
Lessons in life they still teach me
And open my mind, and heart to see.
My children my world, my life they are love
My reason for living my gift from above.
When you look to the sky and suddenly see,
A star shinning proudly, you know it is me!!!

Author's Notes:
This was written for my children to simply remind them to never doubt my love. And when my time has come all they have to do is look to the sky and I will be there.

"But for all of the bad, the good has out done
For together we ignited a cold dying sun
Lessons in life they still teach me "

Those are my favourite lines.. (and of course the last line), I havent yet experienced the bond between a mother & her children.. one day I will and I will remember this poem.

Very sweet, Catherine. I love the line, " I knew how to love, the moment they came" - that's really how it goes, isn't it? Love is never quite the same after you have kids.
