For You, Our Child

You are the child of our love
and the vision in our dreams.
You are curious, strong and beautiful,
and filled with such potential.


We long to see you when we are old:
to know the places you have seen;
to know the wisdom you have known;
to see the changes life has made in you,
and the changes you have made
in a world in need
of so much change.


We have no words of wisdom,
for those must come from you.
But have a dream
and have a vision
and speak to yourself, often and calm,
 and trust in the words you say to yourself
in quiet reflection, and let them inspire
your passion, your strength,
your wisdom, your fire.


We love you now and always will,
and we pray there are moments,
when you are still,
that we come to you in your mind
and comfort you and slow your hurried ways.


And we wish someday
you will come to us
when we are old
and tell us great things
you have done,
and tell us the memories
you have made
that will comfort you in the quiet moments
of your later days,
as we find comfort and pride
in thoughts and memories of you.
