A Note To My Child

everyday i struggle
to give you the kind of life
that i know you deserve
each pain and and sweat
i hardly notice
after all
they bring me
a step closer
to all my dreams for you...
one day soon
i will let you go
and let you roam 
the world on your own
and when you do
remember my counsel
choose your battles well
for not all fights 
are worth your while...

with all my love,

your passion and love are vividly and convincingly said.

beautiful images...
thank you for the thoughtful post.
I linked you in,

Bing (PinkLady) July 22, 2010 at 9:40 PM  

riikainfinityy, i never really got along well with my mom and never understood her when i was growing up. everything changed when i finally became a mom myself. now i know that a parent's love for her child is truly unconditional. and everything that she dreamt for me were for my own good. the same feeling i have for my 3 kids now. thanks for appreciating. =)

Bing (PinkLady) July 22, 2010 at 10:23 PM  

jingle, i always worry about my kids. this post is written for all 3 of them. thanks for linking me in. happy rally, girl!!! i'm so proud to be part of your community. =)

All we can do is lay the foundation and hope they thrive. I'm sure that you've done just that. You are a very warm, loving person. I've noticed.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

Bing (PinkLady) July 22, 2010 at 11:43 PM

My daughter recently turned 18 and is beginning her own journey...Your words touched me. It's comforting to know other parents go through these same feelings. Thanks for sharing.

and that is every parents hope...that they listen along the way and use it once they leave...wonderfully said..straight from the heart...smiles.

JamieDedes July 23, 2010 at 9:10 AM  

Oh, the challenges and rewards of being a mom . . . then, they grow up and your job is to simply be safe harbor, to give that unconditional love . . . but there's nothing like it - being a mom, that is. This is a simply wonderful and tenderly sincere poem. I like it.

Anonymous July 23, 2010 at 9:17 AM  

Hope the same for my children. Beautiful words.

hoiden July 23, 2010 at 9:57 AM

Anky0112 August 20, 2010 at 5:42 AM  

no words can describe this very piece...
this is the note to every child fron their mums.

Bing (PinkLady) August 29, 2010 at 1:31 PM  

thanks for the kind comment, anky. much appreciated here.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
