My Gift to You

As I marvel at your creation,

I’m reminded that miracles do exist.

Each finger and toe a masterpiece.Β 

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 canΒ 

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.
