cherish the children

This was written for a young woman who is in her final year of studying early childhood education. It made her mother cry (and give me a tip!)


cherish the children                 love them           nurture them       guide them

they are the future                they are the now               they are

they are the ones to look up to, not down              the pure of heart

treading uncharted waters                           heading in their own direction

cherish the children              steer them              cheer them on

give all of yourself to them              they need it            do not be greedy with love

give it gladly                 they need it                 give give give

cherish the children                           relish who they are

and they will be more
