A Child's Love

How do I know if my child loves me?



A Child's Love


A child's love is like a whisper,
given in little ways we do not hear;
but if you listen closely,
you will hear.


They do not say it out loud,
but in how they come to you;
Daddy, can you play with me,
Mommy, can you tie my shoe?


The many ways they tell you,
change as they grow;
Dad, I made it to the team today,
Mom, I've got to go.


Pop, I need some money,
you see...there's this girl at school;
Mama, I met a boy today,
and...wow, he's so cool!


Dad, I've something to tell you,
I think she's the one,
Mom, he asked me to marry him,
will you love him as your son?


Dad, I've got some news for you,
It's gonna be a boy!
Mom, I'm kind of scared of this,
yet, I'm filled with joy!


A child's love is like a whisper,
given in the little ways we do not hear;
but if you listen closely,
it will be very clear.
