My Children

Written by: Richard Moriarty

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.
