In the Heart of My Child

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


In the heart of my child I see myself,

each nuance of thinking and gesture astounding,

to think that my core in the melting pot of creation,

can live on in such a profound manner.


And although we are different in many ways,

it is the sameness that gives me such comfort in knowing,

that for all I am in thought and deed, a part of me lives on,

into unknown futures and lives unique.


In the soul of my child I see myself,

that light that shines from the darkness and cares,

has compassion and the capacity for love,

and in this I am most gratified.


For all I wish for my child is happiness,

and to know what love is and to feel its nurturing arms,

to experience all that a soul can in this gift of life,

and to propagate as I have done to enrich the power of good.


In the eyes of my child I see myself,

the struggle, the doubts and pain of earthly life,

and although it hurts me, I know also it is the way of learning and growth,

and wisdom can only be found in the wake of despair.


In my child's eyes I see gratitude,

and I know he understands what I want for him,

and that my love is unconditional, eternal,

and in that I am blessed we have found each other, soul to soul.


In the will of my child I see myself,

hopes and dreams brewing in the cauldron of possibility,

creativity, ideals and righteous belief from a soul that cares,

and in that I wish him only success, and the happiness that rewards an open heart.


One of the greatest gifts in life is to create life, and to nurture another soul to flourish and find happiness and contentment.
