Blessings are the Children

 

picture of children of different nationalities

 

Their beautiful and angelic laughter

The sound of their feet as they pitter patter

Jumping up and down with happiness and joy

All the little girls and little boys

Excited screams as they chase and run

Smiles adorn their faces as they enjoy fun

Sniffles from pain of their freshly cut boo boo

Shouts of excitement when they lose another tooth

Energetic and cheerful they always seem to be

Playing hide and seek and climbing trees

Screams of terror at the monster under their bed

Cries of pain from falling on their head

Sweet giggles from tickles on their tummy

Moans of satisfaction as they enjoy their favorite snack, yummy

Requests to play horsy or get piggy back rides

The look of curiosity and wonder in their eyes

Pleas and request to stay up just a little bit later

The sweetness of their voices as they say their bedtime prayer

Making your day with their gentle kisses and hugs

Grossing you out because they want to play with bugs

The pride in their voice as they recite their ABC’s

Whimpers from hurt from falling on their knees

Kisses on the cheek when you’re having a bad day

Tugs on your arm when they want to play

These are just some of the things our children do

But the most beautiful of them all is when they say I love you

There’s no hesitation or second-guessing

All the children of the world are god’s blessings

 

I’ll Wait

Picture of an hourglass slowly counting down time

 

 

I’ll wait until you come my way

My true love that was meant for me

When we find each other our love will stay

With each other together for eternity

 

 

I’m in no rush to find out what’s out there

Because the one meant for me he will know

That all he needs is right here

Just waiting to tell him so

 

 

We will know that it is true love

Because the way we feel will make it clear

It will be blessed from the heavens above

Because god will always be near

 

 

Our hearts intertwined together

Will be the center of our life

Love, loyalty, and trust forever

You will find in me your wife

 

 

We will always make it through

All the stormy nights and rocky roads

Because you love me, and I love you

And we know how this love thing goes

 

 

Things won’t always be perfect

But we will stand together strong

Because in the end we know our love is worth it

Even when things are going wrong

 

 

We will always cherish the love we have

And never let anyone come in between

Because we are blessed with what we have

You’re my king and I’m your queen

 

 

Our unity, our partnership

Will reign like an empire

This beautiful, wonderful courtship

Will hopefully inspire

 

 

I will adore you, and you will adore me

Our love radiating through

Loving each other faithfully

As true lovers should do

 

 

So, I’ll wait patiently for you

Until it’s our turn for love; in due time

For things to fall into place the way they do

Then I will be yours, and you will be mine
