Poems From Parents to Their Children
Having children is one of the most rewarding, fulfilling and sometimes heartbreaking experiences many people have, from the moment you first look at them in your hospital room filled with flowers Singapore. Parents are at once worried, proud, in awe of and concerned for their children, trying to reach a balance between protecting and nurturing them, and enabling them to discover the world in their own way. At Roses Only, we celebrate all types of relationships and family structures, and have compiled a list of our favorite poems from parents to their children. Don't forget to spoil your own parents with beautiful red roses!
I'm Here, by James Graham
Sleep now, my angel, and rest your eyes.
Mommy must say her last goodbyes.
Please don't be sad, and please don't cry.
Mommy will give you the wings to fly.
If you don't want to say goodbye,
Mommy will watch you and stand by your side.
Life is not fair, but please understand
Mommy's not far, I'm holding your hand.
I'll kiss you goodnight, chase monsters away,
Warm up your heart on a cold winter day,
Be the sun on your skin, the wind in your hair.
I'm never too far, I'm standing right there.
My time spent with you will long be a treasure
Of infinite leagues no ruler could measure.
Mommy must go, it's time to fly.
Take a deep breath and let out a sigh.
Live out your life and bid me farewell.
Find in your heart the strength to excel.
Your future is bright, you'll go far, my dear.
Don't get too sad, don't worry.
Show your children how much you love them with beautiful roses delivered Singapore.
Babies, Parents and Poetry, by Jeffrey McDaniel
On some level, even though I am drained and have less time
I trust that the process of being a father, the unconditional love that comes with it
The whole new way of life rippling with responsibilities
Will alter my essence in profound ways and will ultimately influence the work that grows out of me.
Blue, by Brian Haycock
She was born pink and soft with all of her toes
She had my eyes and her mothers nose
She cried for a moment and then settled down
The angel of my life with hair of brown
Months went by and we watched her grow
Something was wrong and we had to know
The doctor called with concern on his mind
And told me my angel had been born blind
I cried for a while and then I got mad
This was not my idea of being a dad
So from that day forward I started a plight
To be her eyes in life and her heart of sight
As the years passed by she started to grow
Into a beautiful child with a need to know
Each day was spent teaching all that I knew
Until one day when she asked about blue
I tried to define it but my efforts were in vain
Only sighted descriptions were the way to explain
She had no way of knowing what I was trying to say
And for the very first time I failed her that day
Life went on and as she grew
She formed her thoughts on what is blue
Wanting to know just what others could see
Inside her mind it became reality
On her sixteenth birthday our lives got better
We received good new from a doctor's letter
He said he could help and that this just might
Give the eyes of my angel the gift of sight
I will never forget what she asked to see
When she opened her eyes and first saw me
She looked at me with her eyes of new
And asked me to show her the color of blue
I said, Look at my eyes, for they are blue
The day you were born they watched over you
All through the years they never looked away
They will always be with you and will never stray
She smiled at me and said that she always knew
About what the meaning was of the color blue
Through out her life she could always see
With the eyes of her heart instilled from me
To her the color had a meaning more than just sight
Blue had a feeling that gave her an insight
Throughout the years as both our hearts grew
She told me that Love was the color Blue
Teaching Your Child Through Play, by life heARTist
I tried to teach my child with books.
He gave me only puzzled looks.
I tried to teach my child with words.
They passed him by often unheard.
Despairingly, I turned aside.
"How shall I teach this child?" I cried.
Into my hand he put the key
"Come," he said, "play with me."
Don't forget to spoil your son too, with our gifts for him.
Letting Go, by Kelly Zakerski
Their lives begin, that special day
Your hardest job, is on the way.
Walking and pacing, all night long
Knowing that one day, they’ll be strong.
Watching them crawl, then walk and run
Treasure each moment, share their fun.
They grow so fast, enjoy each day
For sometime soon, they’ll move away.
Years of school, sometimes they will drag
We’re filled with pride, we parents brag.
Teaching our kids, always be kind
Lasting friendships, many will find.
Do as I say, not as I do
We all have said, our parents too.
The truth comes out, don’t cheat or lie
Don’t try and skimp, to just get by.
Take the right path, we try to guide
Sometimes they don’t, we let it slide.
Knowing they must, find their own way
Life is tough, on track they must stay.
Bumps in the road, many will hit
We as parents, just have to sit.
Learn from mistakes, it takes its’ toll
Their independence, that’s our goal.
The hardest part, is yet to come
When high school years, are said and done.
We’ve done our jobs, as best we could
We must let go, or so we should.
Give them their wings, and let them fly
As we sit back, and often cry.
Turning the page, is hard to do
Wondering if, they listened to you.
Reach for the stars, follow your dreams
It takes time, forever it seems.
Your heart will break, can’t let it show
It’s so difficult, letting go.
Make sure your son visits your favorite florist Singapore so he can spoil you, too!
You throw so many tantrums
Your demand for things get so long
You do things to annoy me at times
But still you are so strong
You make me smile and that is the reason
I love you so much my loving son
I pray that you get success every way
I pray that you never have to struggle any day
I always wish the best for you in life
As you deserve every bit in strive
Baby stay as you are so loving
You are my most adorable son
I love you so much!
