Poetry: Love Letter To My Children

© ThisNest.com


 I love you, my brown-eyed child

Your skin a golden glow

I’ll teach you about this world of ours

But I’ll learn as I watch you grow

The lessons that can only be taught

When histories intersect

When all that I thought could ever be

Becomes more that I’d ever expect.

I adore you, my curly-haired child

Your lips a perfect pink

I’ll offer my guiding opinions to you

But it’s you who will make me think

My precious gift is just half of me

But the very best of us

The parts of you once separate by hate

now mixed in you…BY LOVE
