Child

Child,

You are joy.

In your laughter

I hear my soul speak.

 

Child,

You are innocence.

In your sweetness,

I recover my solace.

 

Child,

You are kindness.

In your praises,

I unearth my security.

 

Child,

You are love.

In your adoration,

I find my needs met.

 

Child,

You are vulnerability.

In your needs,

I discover my meaning.

Childhood’s Splendor

Being – in its purest form,
Flowing innocence, unblemished.
Unearthing life’s magnificence
Through fearless encounters,
Sheltered by unseen arms that embrace and guard.
Love supreme and unconditional,
Hearts bursting but unbroken,
Preserved in childhood’s splendor.

Love, Enduring.

Love so sweet;
Spoken without barriers.
Delicate kisses;
Given without condition.
Through growth and transformation,
Surmountable challenge and incomparable delight,
Uncontrollable laughter and tears of exasperation,
I grow alongside you.

With perceived inadequacy and inconsistency,
Held by a heart of love overflowing,
I adore you more each day.
Be patient with me, always.
You are abundant love, unfolded.
You challenge me to selflessness,
Remind me of the joy in simplicity.

Birthed of my body, fed by my breast:
My marvelous child.
