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 I see no limits to my child's life Although I know It will be filled with strife, I'm hoping that doors will open each day I'm praying that kindness will come his way You look frightened? You tremble with fear? Come, come closer touch him my dear Touch his cheek so soft so sweet Be one of those people he needs to meet Someone who will look and hopefully see The skill, the talent The ability Please come closer You don't have to speak Come a little closer Just touch his cheek And when you do you will see this sweet, sweet child is no different than you or me

Sticky fingers ' tangled hair, scattered crayons, everywhere. Fancy artwork ' on the wall ' drawn by midgets ' three feet tall. Tell me why ' and tell me how ' that was mine ' I want it NOW! Fix my bike. Buy me gum. If you have it, I want some. Dirty faces, grass-stained knees, learning words ' like pretty please. Endless hugs & goofy wet kisses, learning respect with 'Mr.' & 'Mrs.' Scraped-up hands, from falling down. Tender tugs - - on my night gown. Need more paper ' for Santa's letter? I wasn't so bad ' but I've been better. Watching a movie ' again and again ' Mommy, please ' put the tape back in. Messy fingers ' hair gone wild ' all in the life ' of a precious child !
