A child is a gift,
more precious than any other.
For only you will know
if you’re their father or mother.
The tantrums they throw,
the challenges they face
can never erase
that smile on your face.
The pride and the love radiates from within
and after the chaos
sheer joy and peace will begin.
So no matter how upset
a parent can get
or no matter how stressful
our life can be…
our duty is to care for our gifts
and to love them unconditionally.
