'Cause We Are Your Children - Poem by Juwon Daniel

You taught us how to tie our shoes,
Ride bicycles, swing toward the sun,
Chase fireflies, catch moonbeams on the run;
Oh, teaching us was so much...
Baking brownies by the ton,
Blue jeans racing toward someone,
Who can share our magical moments each day.

‘Cause we are your children
And that never ends,
Whatever the future
It’s you we depend on,
To crayon our clouds
‘Til the rainbows blend.
‘Cause we are your children
And that never ends.
You clip our wings then help us fly,
We’re parasailing, heads held high;
Then you reel us in
For some cookies and a prayer.

‘Cause we are your children
And that never ends;
We are leaves waving warmly
In spacious green meadows,
Where sunlight runs freely;
We laugh and we play,
Collecting each day.
'cause we are your children.
