I wrote this years ago, one late night. This was either before #4 arrived or while we were waiting for her. This is my hope for my children.
The Mother In Me
The mother in me says to her children;
Don’t cross streets without looking both ways
Don’t talk to strangers
Don’t drink and drive
Don’t do drugs.
The mother in me thinks her children;
Should respect all people
Should treat others as they would like to be treated
Should love and cherish life
Should be all they can, because they can be anything.
The mother in me prays her children;
Will never hurt
Will be loved by all
Will never feel lost or alone
Will always know and remember I love them.
