Precious Plea

7208089180_0b394bc8bf_c

I loved you before you drew your first breath

The sight of you, your pudgy cheeks and soft silk skin

Made life complete a purpose to begin

The miracle of you so perfect so new

The years went by you grew so fast

Challenges came you learnt you passed

Then one day you got so busy

You left the coop in one big swoop

The world your oyster so much to see

So fascinating you couldn’t wait to leave

I felt the tears to see you go

I wondered if you would know

How much I love you how proud I am

Your adult life has now just begun

I hope you know I will always be there

As your rock if you feel down or like kicking the bin

I will be there for you to forgive your sins

If you get hurt and cry any tears

I will be there to fight your fears

If it feels like no one understands

I will be there to hold your hand

Some people you can’t replace

Your parents gave you your face

No need to hide it all within

I will love you through thick and thin

So don’t forget me give a little thought

Now and then a message or call

The days get shorter now that you’re gone

I watch from afar sending thoughts and love

Willing you onwards with invisible gloves

One day you too will feel the awe

To see uniqueness being born

Emotions stronger than any known

Will give you purpose you aren’t alone

My baby you will always be

I love you child

Don’t forget me

    I was a mess the day my kids went to their first day of school, I’m not looking forward to the day they leave the nest. A beautiful poem!

      Yes it’s a real turning point when the kids leave home suddenly you have to live for yourself but that is life 🙂
