The Love Of A Child
They’re not looking for perfection
You’re their parent; their all.
They just want to know they’re loved
And that you’ll come when they call.
They don’t look at you in horror
When you haven’t brushed your hair.
In fact, they don’t care what you look like;
They just love that you are there.
They look to you for answers,
Perhaps a million questions a day
Because you’re their source of wisdom
So it matters what you say.
It’s not about status
Or diamonds and gold.
It’s about genuine smiles
And a warm hand to hold.
And they look to you for kindness;
For unconditional love.
You are mum. You are dad.
You are more than enough!
