Today I Weep, and my Tears are a Fragrance of Love: To Our Children. (Inspired by my Friend Jamie).

Suffer little children ... theirs is the Kingdom ..



Pure Delight


I look at You lovingly, and my Heart thrills;

The rays of the sun, in its effulgence,

Caresses your serene faces in reverie.

As the majesty of waves curls and splashes,

The rhythmic breathing of your delicate forms,

Resonates like Nature’s cadences, while walking Her dawns.

My Heart is filled with longing,

And I smile, as I hear your anguished cry.

The midwives untangle you from my wife’s sanctity,

With the grace-like elegance of ballerinas,

Placing you delicately in your cozy cots.

Meanwhile, I’m immersed in the profundity of bliss.





Today I weep, and my tears are a fragrance of Love.

Feeling only intense joy and thankfulness,

I offer Gratitude, from the depth of a receptive Soul.

As your faces glow with iridescent beauty,

The effervescent moon cradles you in sleep,

And I dance with the naiveté of your dreams.

O Beauty‘s Gold, O Friend of the new-born!

Come! Sweet exultation!

Stay connected to our lives in loving splendour.

Let us all enter into Your rhapsody,

Sitting at the table of Your cute Palace,

To dine with Love-Delight.

If we could only find a way to insure that all children will be happy while growing up...keep them sheltered from hatred, warfare and cruelty. Obviously not a realistic thought, but it certainly would be lovely.

Beautiful work as always, my friend.

Your sentiments are as awesome as my poetry, as you say. Truly appreciated and loved.

Bill, we still have to try to do try, most of us. My son is expressing a lot of beautiful thoughts these days. You and I, we help and will continue to inspire with our loving thoughts and prayerful examples.

Thank you so much, my friend. Appreciations.

Hehe Mom.

I'm a dad, too, for my sins, :)

So beautiful these little ones, and I feel that there are so many parents on Hub Pages that do or have done such an excellent and loving job.

Much gratitude, my sweet.

Oh my....Thank You so have encapsulated the whole experience from the joy's of their birth and the love I feel for every moment. Manatita this is probably the greatest gift I have received, I am humbled and filled with joy. I give pretty much everything for my little ones, they are my moon, my sun, and my stars. You have moved me deeply (which you continue to do and I cannot give enough thanks) Your friend, Jamie.
