To My Children


I loved you before I met you,

you stole away my heart.

The moment I held you in my arms,

I never wanted us to part.

I remember your first smile,

I remember your tiny face,

all of the memories I have of you,

no one can erase.

I remember your first tiny tears

and how they broke my heart,

little did I know this was just the start.

I watched you grow over the years,

not wanting you to feel pain.

I soothed you and I comforted you

time and time again.

As the years passed ,

you grew into a person all your own,

You began your own life and

again I was alone.

But the memories that I cherish

are locked safe inside my heart and

though the years have passed they will never be forgotten.
