A Gift to a Father

My Children

Beauty...resilience...timelessness...strength
the facets of a diamond,
each cut differently
reflecting the light
giving it a value.

Children are a gift
each a treasure,
all have a value
that is beyond measure.

Individuality...skill...talent...personality
traits of all - each child cut differently
from the other.

Measured like a diamond
cut a trait apart,
their strengths
added together, become a family.

How blest as a Father we all are.

    I only had two and they are as different as night and day. But I wouldn't trade either of them! Nice one Richard, children make life worthwhile!
