I See The Sunshine

Updated on May 15, 2017

Helping Me See

You took me completely by surprise.
I never planned having children in my life.
Knocked me off my feet.
It is hard just to keeping up with your rhythm and beat.
Many wonderful thoughts dance through my mind.
I can think back on many blissful thoughts that eases me through and through.
When I look into their eyes,
I feel loved before they even say, “I love you”.

Nobody can compare on what they each experience,
Every child comes within a variation of tests.
This will never determine which parent is the pest,
It force you to see inside yourself and figure out if you can last.

You always keep me on my toes.
Always asking of toys and clothes.
Soon you will be packing up and living on your own.
With a wave goodbye,
A tear sucked back up into my eye.
I will forever miss you and yet…..
Be very proud of how far you both have come.

Your strengths along with that raw emotion,
Animates our bonds of affection for all time.
You both truly give me everything –
Including the sunshine.
