Never Ending Love (A Parents Love)

A parent's love is never ending
As we watch, our children grow
We pick them up and mend their bruises
We want to kiss the pain away
Tenderly we give them love
Holding them closer to our hearts
We read them stories every night
Just before, we tuck them into bed
Then they would weave their own version
Of how Tommy took my toy
The story told so heart rendering
As you want to hold him close
Then years pass on by
With each game or story or lullabies
You watch him grow from child to man
In addition, he starts to spend more time with friends
Then late at night, when he returns home
He slowly starts to shrug his shoulders
As you, ask him ‘Where Have You Been'!
You spend hours just before
Just wondering where he went
All I can say to those who wait
Alas, that is all that we can do
Hope and pray that they are ok
And returns safe home to you

    Wow, Kaila, I love the love expressed here.
    I am a parent too and I know the feeling.
    Somehow, we have to trust.

    Your son should be honoured to have a mother who writes such touching uplifting works. If I could cry this would be it (Report) Reply

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
