Poems on Children and Parents
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.

3. On Children
Your children are not your children
They are the sons and daughters of life's longing for itself

Singing, laughing, cries of glee,
Come, they say, play with me.Featured Shared Story
