One Cannot Live One's Childrens' Lives For Them


ONE CANNOT LIVE ONE’S CHILDRENS’ LIVES FOR THEM

One cannot live one’s childrens’ lives for them-
Their pains are their pains-
Their disappointments their disappointments-
One cannot take them away
From every real hurt,
And make them live always
In Blessing Happiness Love.

One cannot live one’s childrens’ lives for them
Even their pain is their own
Though sometimes it hurts us so much
We do not feel the difference.
