Children Poems

Poetry about Children - Poems for Children

Children are the ultimate gift to two people who love each other and the ultimate inconvenience to parents that don't. There is no bigger responsibility, and yet a relationship with a child can bear the greatest rewards. Children intuitively know when they are wanted and when they are not. The way that they raised from the cradle will affect the people they will become. There is a famous saying that children spell love T I M E. There may be many compelling reasons why you cannot be with your children but none of them can replace time. It is gone forever.

A diamond ring, a baton to twirl?
A pretty pink dress with lots of bows,

Reading the poem just reminded me that I cannot be a disciplinarian with my 12 year old all the times. I need to understand his aptitude and attitude towards life.

My Dear Child

If I could I would remove all your fears
If I could I would remove all your tears
If I could I would make life painless
If I could I would give you all your courage

Your heart in the palm of their hand

So you vow to do all that you can...
