Poem- Prophecy of our Children

Your Prophecy is simple.
You’ll have the things I never had.
I’ll be kind to you in all ways.
Explain when you don’t understand.
Be patient when you are mad.
I’ll be stern when you need it.
If you are mean.
When you tease.
I will correct you, redirect you.
I will try to give you everything.
But not so much that you become a monster.
I will instill in you forgiveness, grace, kindness.
All things good.
While allowing you to be your own person.
I will support your interests.
Even if they do not interest me.
When you cry over a scrapped knee.
I will sooth you, mend you.
When you become silent from a loss.
I will stand quietly beside you.
Holding you, sharing in your heartache.
When you go through joys.
I will cheer with you.
Happy about your achievements.
Glad about your good fortunes.
Selflessly I will live for you.
So that your life may be as perfect as it can.
and through this I will be your parent, the best that I can be.
