Children

Although
I’m not their mother,
I care for them each day.
I cuddle,
Sing,
And read to them,
And watch them as they play.
I see each new accomplishment,
And help them grow and learn,
I understand their language,
And
I listen with concern.
They come to me for comfort,
And I kiss away their tears.
They proudly show their work to me,
I give the loudest cheers!
No,

I am not their mother,
But my role is just as strong.
I nurture them and keep them safe,
Though maybe not for long.
I know someday the time may come,
When we will have to part,
But I know each child
I’ve cared for
Is forever in my heart!
