The Gift

They May Forget


Children are a precious gift
we are given from above
in our arms them to lift
and smother with our love

They’re wide-eyed and innocent
it is us that they adore
No matter what you meant
although you don’t keep score

Even when they may forget
the words that you said
On their hearts it’ll set
with the feelings they inbed

So choose your words with care
in everything that you say
to those gifts you have there
looking up to you today.
