Children & Joy

WP Yellow

I trade my selfishness
to watch you play,
to know you’re experiencing
a wonderful day.

I watch you explore
and question in mind,
the various things
I can’t quite explain.

I love to observe
but listen too,
to children’s voices
as they sing.

I’m not certain why
but my tears want to flow,
as they perform
their Christmas show.

I now understand
why my mom was so proud,
to watch her young ones
come and go,
a few with talents,
the others not much,

but being a good parent…
is to be filled with love.
