* Children *

Rating: 3.6

Every pulse of life
That melts into a heart
Brings forth a love that's true,
A Child's new birth
Untold it's worth

Every eye that's open
Every ear that hears
Shall share the joy
Of Heavens lift
As Angels sound
The greatest gift

Every circle turning
Again it has no end
The life that stretches ever forth
The Heavens that decend
New joy found among us
A Child, from God above
Who reaches through our darknest hour
The greatest gift of loves true power

The bless'ed soul cries out
Know me, that you may say
My tears and pain are not in vain
That we might find the way again

Love can conquer all
When man and woman too
Direct their hearts in better ways
To Gods own blessed
Eternal days

The sun it shines forever
For none can end the flame
It lives in eyes of new born light
For there it shall remain

love looks on from Heaven
Whatever happens, seen
For far beyond the clouds above
The keeper holds the dream

Parents, know your Children
Carefully show the way
Be slow to anger also
And greater lead the way

Show them only love
A family means so much
And don't forget to let them know
That words of kindness
Are seeds that grow

And when they grow much older
Look back, at things you've done
The Random acts of kindness shown
Repeat them every one

The children are the future and they take their lead from their parents. If they were all raised as they should be then the world would surely be a better place. Wonderful write Duncan, a top drawer poem! Best wishes, Andrew

Duncan, what a timeless 'find' on this third day of 2010. CHILDREN is really a series of little poems, (like the Psalms or Proverbs in the Bible) , each verse, self-contained and worthy of inclusion in a book of 'inspirational thoughts'. I know I haven't made contact for a while and I am thrilled to see you are still gracing PoemHunter with your beautiful poetry and your compassionate approach to life and living - and of course children. Thanks for this exceptional poem. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

There is so much wisdom and joy in this sincere and heart melting poem Duncan. I feel every parent should read this beautiful piece. Perhaps it could be read out at a parent/teacher night or where parents are assembled together, because it can help our children as they become raised with love become the next generation...Top marks!
