Kids in Mind

Updated on November 10, 2017

Rhymes of all kinds is what you will find, if you come by for a visit. Some are funny and a few are sad, but many will make you wildly glad!

Whether my sons are five, twenty, fifty, or a hundred years of age, they will never cease to be my babies. Words do very little justice in explaining the depths and the heights of a mother's love for that of her children; a love such as this will forever be indescribable.

Loves Me Like a Rock -Paul Simon

My Boys

Kids in Mind


Dirty faces,

and

broken toys;

a household

of entertainment

from

my babies;

my boys!


Material things

mean

less and less,

because

two little boys

will always

make such

a glorious mess!


Broken

possessions

are not a

major crime,

nor are

sticky walls

laden with

jam and jelly,

all the time!


My boys

have opened

my eyes

clearly wide;

they have

shown me

what truly matters,

and that is

LOVE,

which will ever abide!


My babies;

my sons!

A mother knows

of no greater love,

except for that

of our Savior,

Jesus Christ,

in the Heavenly

Realms above!

~

Kids in Mind


From tricycles, training wheels, and bicycles, to skateboards, rollerblades, and 4-Wheel Drive trucks, I have watched my sons blossom from newborn babies (nestled in my arms) to young adults who never cease to amaze me in the wondrous and magnificent human beings that they have become. Their essence is not in what they do, but in who they are, from within the depths of their hearts and souls.

      Came back to read your lovely poem! I believe every mother has the same emotions towards her children, as expressed in this poem. They may grow up but a Mother’s feelings don’t change.

      Thanks again and have a blessed and beautiful day!

      The love for your two little sons shines and glows in every line of this poem. The feeling and parenthood charm with simple diction are essence of your poem. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

      Threekeys,

      Thank you for your very interesting comment.

      Yes, children teach us so much about getting back to the basic priorities of life.

      They are the heart of what it means to truly live via the bare truths that emanate from them, (which is always such a wake-up call).

      Beautiful expressions and I could relate to this poem so well!

      I often have the same feelings for my sons, who are now grown up and well settled in life.

      Thanks for this wonderful poem!

      Children are whole when they are born. They are little adults. It's just that they need to learn the ropes on how to speak and be on planet earth. Love two, three and four year olds in particular. They are so intuitive and honest. Love love them! You learn again, especially about love and trust. Not to forget adaptive creativity.

      Kids are a wonderful gift, and no matter how old they grow they’ll always be kids in a parent’s eyes.
