Love is a Four-Letter Word spelled M I K E
The Love of a Child by Stacey Chillemi
The greatest love of all is be able to have a child’s love
To love your child and to have your child love you back
Waking each morning with your child’s eyes on you.
A child’s love keeps you believing in brighter days
Believing that dreams do come true
Giving you hope for a brighter future
Bringing happiness to your heart
Bringing rainbows to every gray sky
Having the love and comfort of a child is the greatest gift in life
A child’s love is forever lasting
No matter how far you travel
No matter how many miles away,
You will always have your child’s love in your heart
It will never go away
You can always feel your child’s presence in your heart
Your child’s home is in your heart
Their love is always here to comfort you.
Since this month our Craftie Theme is love, I went looking for this poem. I'd heard it many years ago but couldn't remember anything but the phrase Love of a Child. This past Saturday my son turned four. We had a family birthday party. I grew up an only child, and my son is now growing up an only child. I so want him to have family around him, so for me, this Saturday was a perfect day.
This is my four-year-old attempting to help his bear get potty trained.
