JOYS AND SORROWS

Kathy Dingus

 

 

Each day my beautiful child

I watch you sprout and grow

as you learn about life's

joys and sorrows

I learn the depth of love.

The endless energy and your quicksilver smile

you unselfishly bestow

send tiny arrows spewing forth

to rain unmercifully upon my heart.

Each night as you snuggle near

and comfort you attain

I say a special prayer of thanks

that once again you are safe from harm

and lying within my arms.
