Little Souls

We suffer their blows
We rejoice their triumphs
We weather the storms
Of life’s different phases
We cry with them
We fly with them
We support and encourage them
Through the seasons of life
Howl at the moon
To release our frustrations
At the difficulty
Of this task we’ve taken on
We never own them
We never are them
We are their guardians
Until they are ready to be their own
But still we watch over them
That is the way
Raise them well
Give them their dignity
For the individual soul that they are
And let them show us their magnificence
That we can be proud of who they are

    1. Thank you.
      Inspired by watching my daughters grow up and seeing them becoming incredible young ladies that I have been blessed to watch over.
      Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend.
