My Gift to You
As I marvel at your creation,
I’m reminded that miracles do exist.
Each finger and toe a masterpiece.
My heart overflowing with unknown wonder.
This life made whole by your presence –
gifted to me by the grace of God.
Your smile renewing a forgotten faith.
My purpose found in the tiniest of hands.
I may not be rich or wise, but I can
show you the meaning of trust –
As I will always be there for you
in the calm, and in the storm.
I can show you the meaning of unconditional love
through my unwavering love for you.
So forgive me, little one
the mistakes I will most certainly make.
And though I may not be able to buy you
the latest toys or the latest clothes,
I will always give you my time –
the greatest gift I have to offer you.
I can show you the meaning of confidence
by honoring the choices you make.
And I will teach you to embrace your dreams
by giving you the room to reach for them.
