What I would do for you

I love my kids more than most anything in the world. The moment that they were placed upon my breast after they entered this world, an undeniable bond was formed.

In my heart I knew that I would do anything for them that was humanly possible to protect them, love them and care for them. It was a secret, silent mother's promise to them that I made in my heart.

I found this poem that I wanted to share and one day I hope to share with them.

What I Would Do For You
© Jayne Sena
I would do just about anything you'd ask,
For you there's nothing I wouldn't do, there's no such task.

I would walk without my shoes to the end of the Earth,
I would give up anything I had to, to teach you self worth.

I would hold your hand every minute of every day,
But I won't because I know you need to find your own way.

I would surely bear the heartache of your first love that's real,
Even though I can't, I will naturally feel as you feel.

I would sell my soul if it would keep you happy forever,
I would give my right arm to keep us forever together.

I would run a hundred miles up-hill in the rain,
Just to guarantee that you will never feel pain.

I would laugh with you even if I was sad,
I will give you a smile even if I'm mad.

I can only accept your mistakes with a grin on my face,
I will guide you in correcting them, but at your own pace.

I will guide you through life, as this world can get quite wild,
Just don't you ever forget that you will always be my child.

That is a beautiful poem. I need to remember that as my daughter throws multiple tantrums. Thanks for stopping by. Great comment

Omg, how beautiful!

I feel this way, and it's perfectly put into words.

It made me cry a little to read it. My son is my whole world.
