Between the dark and the daylight,
When the night is beginning to lower,
Comes a pause in the day's occupations,
That is known as the Children's Hour.
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.

Most every night when they're in bed,
And both their little prayers have said,
They shout for me to come upstairs
And tell them tales of gypsies bold,
Grandpa sat with cigar at his side (rarely in his mouth), his bushy gray eyebrows and mustache crouched in intense concentration, a chess piece or book in hand in most of my memories. But...
Let kids be kids; just let them be
Princesses, pirates; let the bath be the sea!
Let them stare at the sky and find animals in the clouds.
Wow! A truly amazing poem with a beautiful message for parents. Childhood is a special period with so much joy, innocence and wonder. It is a delightful stage. Besides, so much good can be...
What can you give to one small girl?
A diamond ring, a baton to twirl?
A pretty pink dress with lots of bows,
or dainty sandals that show her toes?
The poem has touched very much. The poet has nicely and successfully narrated her feeling toward a child who needs nothing but love. I appreciate the poet and hope to get more poems of this...
This child of mine you stare at so,
Please come closer so you will know
Just who my child is and what I see
when those sweet eyes stare back at me
This is an amazing poem!! It touched my heart and soul. I have a 5-year-old son. He is the brightest light in my life. He was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy when he was 14 months old. It was...
The day you were born,
you touched my soul.
You were the missing link
that made my life whole.
This is a beautiful poem. I'm the mom of 3. I have two grown daughters. They light up my world like they did when they were young. I'm blessed to have a grand-boy that I'm extremely close to....
I see you looking at your children,
Wondering what their lives will be.
If you verify some answers
Then their future you might see.
I loved this poem. The list of things that should be given to our children to have an amazing journey through this life, it's all here! This poem contains so much wisdom! Beautifully written....
When you see a smiling face,
Their happiness all over the place,
Singing, laughing, cries of glee,
Come, they say, play with me.
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.
A mother's heart is the key,
The key to success.
A mother's heart is a ribbon
That ties your future together.
How beautiful you are! I wouldn't be happy without you, Mom. Oh Mom, I will never forget you!
When the voices of children are heard on the green,
And laughing is heard on the hill,
My heart is at rest within my breast,
And everything else is still.
It's so great. I read this poem when I was in 7th grade. I love it so much.
Mommy, do you love me?
Of course I do, dear!
Let's snuggle a minute,
Same scenario between my daughter and I ten years ago when she was 15. It broke our hearts, but we let go and let God. Didn't hear from her for almost 3 years. Then a mutual family friend...
Thank you, God, for
The children of mine
Who teach me things
That blow my mind.
This is exactly my prayer for my two sons and for my upcoming baby. I am really touched by this poem. Love it!!!
I have two sons, one of them is with me and my eldest is with my mom. As...
