You Love Me More Than You Love Yourself

Oh, my children; precious babes!
I've placed all your pictures on the shelf
And as I wander toward my grave
(I realize)
You love me more than you love yourself...

Daisy's Original Quote

It's not the job that's hard;
It's the attitude you take to accomplish it.

This is the quote I raised my 3 sons on whenever they would tell me washing the dishes or any other task was too hard.

Short My Children poem by Marley Cash-Powell| Details |


My wishes venture from me.
Skittering across the wind.
My roots, though unrooted, 
Still sustaining them. 
Haphazardly, I flail,
Tumbling, end over end.
Delicately I navigate
Nurturing at Nature’s whim

Short My Children poem by Nyonglema Pisoh| Details |

New Life

Hiding in mummy's tummy, kicking happily away
 I'm kissing you warmly, clapping and singing in play
 They say in a few weeks
 I'll be able to kiss  your new cheeks
 I can't wait for the morning I'll lift you in a sway

Short My Children poem by Christina Holmes| Details |


Priceless pearl
my hidden diamond
love's sweet jewel

Heaven sent
Angelic countenance
Beauty so pure

Lovely daughter
your character delights
my devotion forever

Heartbeat on screen
My unbelief ceased
the moment
first squeezed my finger

Short My Children poem by Jaafar Sadig El Waad| Details |


To My daughters Loubabatoul Koubra, Halima Saadiya and Maryam Jamilah

A knock on the door
Shouts from the inside
All the three running 
To swoon over my knees
Laughing my lovely
The gate to paradise
The gift from 
The Messenger,
My lifelong model.

Short My Children poem by Karen Colibri| Details |


For you, I will do anything,
I will watch you while you sleep.
Be there when fear opens your eyes,
Hold you until you feel safe.

You are mine,
So go wherever you want,
Do whatever you want to do,
But know that I will watch over you,
And I won't shut my eyes until I know that you are safe.

Short My Children poem by SILA MUTHOKA| Details |

Another One

all gazing there up,
't was time to drop.
the cloud shift'd beautifully.
excit'd by the show,
our boys did ignore
the lazy lark wittingly.

while larks larked festive,
Ben waxed real sportive,
n'saw no trees shaking nearby.
a vulture schemed wise,
afloat their reverse,
the Choco won a goodbye.

Short My Children poem by Holly Ward| Details |

Blonde and Blue

Blonde, blue is what I see
Running around along the trees.
Essences of life with all of its wonder
The brightest lights in a world of somber.
A question to an answer I didn’t see before
With love, jubilation and what I adore.
How simplistically put, but which is true
My picturesque dreams, of blonde and blue.

Short My Children poem by Derriziel Pierce| Details |

Love Is

Love is wanted, 
Love is needed, 
Love has even been synthesized,
Your neural pathways can be harmonized, synchronized, and then verbalized.
When frequencies and sound waves organize, 
It pushes and pulls to pluralize, The inevitable mortification of pride.
Love is wanted, 
Love is needed, 
Love is to apologize.

My children

I'm raising my kid's the best i know how,
I give them all the attention a kid should ever need AND MORE,
I'm determined my kid's will flourish and fully succeed.
My kid's are thriving and have a wonderful life,
They are my shining star on a cold dark night,
They bring joy and happiness into my life,
They are my children.

Short My Children poem by Steven Riley| Details |

The absence of touch

The absence of touch attaches itself 
To the narrow whisper of his heart beat. 
Footprints echo in loving embrace 
Of his fathers mummified conscience
There are memories that rise like the sun 
On days when the leaves aren't kept
There are days when the rain won't come
All he wants to do is look outside And see him starring back.

Short My Children poem by Kim Bond| Details |

Kim Bond

Mother of Rachel, Trey, and a few pets;
Lover of Jesus Christ our Lord, darling husband Hank, and faith-based writing;
Who feels hopeful, joyful, and whimsical; 
Who fears tight spaces, long races, and crowded places;
Who would like to see her Savior’s face, gifts of grace, things fall in place;  
Resident of Saint Louis, Missouri;

Summer Time

Summer Time
and in the spring
the children sprout
growing up until they old
reminiscing on the past
(Summer Time)...
 So innocent and young
growing old and wise
telling true stories
to the children eyes
some young become old fools
just make sure its not you
Summer Time
and in the spring
the children sprout
growing up until they old
reminiscing on the past
(Summer Time)...

In my childs' eyes

I see God in my child's' eyes...

I see forgiveness in my child's' eyes...

I see love in my child's' eyes

I see my children love life...

...the way I love life...

I see my children treat themselves
the way I treat myself and others'...

...the way life has blessed me...
...with love - with love
...from God

...In my child's' eyes I feel God...
...I am truly blessed...

Short My Children poem by TUMAINI ELIAS| Details |


Whom one to blame?
Is it our upbringing?
Or society setting?	
Who to blame?

Immorality is relative,
Our daughters are dumb,
They deviate from teachings.
Who to blame?

They conceive accidentally,
Sadly out of wedlock,
Wonderful in a small age.
Who to blame?

Abortion is relative,
Infants are thrown to the wells,
Indeed they curse our societies.
Who to blame?

My City

From Banksia Grove to Alfred Cove
There are lovely sights to see
Sorrento Quay is on the way
To where my children love to play
Elizabeth Quay is a brand new place
That puts a smile upon my face
Oh Perth is such a lovely place to be
South West Australia is for me
Then Midland lies there in the East
And Fremantle lies in the West
But every part of our grand city
To me, she is the best

What is the point in life that causes us so much strife why dont we all just end our lives
a bullet to the brain would do it an aspirin to the heart would surely stop it I just cant
fathom to think a better way than to end the pain and what more pain can the afterlife
bring yet my children who will wipe away my children s tears for i am like a god in there
eyes and what if god committed suicide

Short My Children poem by TAMMY REAMS| Details |

Heaven in the Face of a Child

The first tear of joy
The first smile of life
The first words of thought
The first prayer to God

The glow upon their face
The lips that speak at Grace
The eyes of crystal glass
That see all in God's place

Look quickly, watch closely
For even in a glance
Carry it deeply and never forget
Know that there is Heaven in the face of every child.

T reams  Dedicated to my sister: Leslie

Short My Children poem by April Gabriella| Details |

Sleeping Children

Sleeping children please don't wake
Mommy has had a very long day
Sleeping children please keep dreaming
Rest your minds for another day of scheming
My little babies stay aslumber
So mommy can rest unencumbered
Sleeping children please stay quiet
You know how mommy craves her silence
 Sleeping children please don't wake
You are the cutest babies on earth while in this state

Another one I'm not sure is done yet...
