We Love Our Children / With A Love Like No Other Love - Poem by Shalom Freedman

WE LOVE OUR CHILDREN/ WITH A LOVE LIKE NO OTHER LOVE

We love our children,
With a love like no other love-
Beyond our knowing and our understanding-
Beyond our principles and reason and judgment.

We love our children
More than we love ourselves.
They alone mean more to us
Than we to ourselves do.

How strange then that they must make their lives for themselves
And all our love
Cannot give them
What they most need to be and do and have.
