Innocent Birth

image source:

From the day
of their birth

As innocent angels
upon the earth

It’s from us
they do expect

To lovingly nurture
and them protect

As through life
these babies grow

We teach them
what we know

All the wisdom
we’ve learned along

The paths taken
right or wrong

If these things
we don’t give

However then will
life they live

In this world
without falling down

Unable to rise
from the ground?

They are seeds
that we sow

And to them
this we owe!
