Learned Love

How can I say thank you for all the things you do
When, they’re all so never-ending from hearts so very true.
No gratuity could measure the amount I count on you
I’m sorry and I’m grateful: for now,
It’s all that I can do.
I’m blessed to have you in my life; for
You mean so very much
I thank God for your presence and for every part
of me you touch.
It’s through you that I am learning the art of give
and take, and
I’m educated often for all of goodness’ sake.
The integrity in your hearts and thought provoking ways
Help me to get through most of my darkest days.
And when I peek outside my box, I see you being there.
You hold my hand and cradle my heart, and it
means more than you’re aware.
Through the worry and frustration, 
you soldier your way through
The ways of love and how it works;
I have learned from you.

****Written for my Daughter, Son-in-Law and Grand-Daughter

    Such a beautiful, heartfelt dedication, Kimberly! Isn't it wonderful to "peek outside (your) box" and find your family ther e to help you through the tough times? You may feel you have "Learned Love" from them, but it seems that they have also learned to love from you. I'm sure they are thankful as well. Wonderful writing, Kimberly. Love, Carolyn
