A TREASURE CALLED CHILD

Every child is a star and deserves the right to twinkle

To shine so bright with the beauty of a thousand stars

A child’s lovely eyes sparkles with everlasting joy

The voice of a child is soothing

More soothing than the serenades of a loved one

The smile of a child summons deep emotions within

Emotions that refreshes like an early morning dew

God’s gift of a child

Blesses our lives in too many ways than we can count

A mother’s most priceless jewel is her child

Who can tell of the joy she feels

As she daily cuddles her priceless jewel

Lifting her jewel sky high and peering into those little lovely eyes

Gives her an aura of accomplishment

And a sweet satisfaction no earthly treasure can offer

Her gift of a child is heavenly

And her heavenly gift is her well of joy

Though life may be difficult

As she beholds her jewel and holds it close to her heart

Her slate of life’s miseries disappears at least for a second

And she receives a moment’s comfort and reassurance

And a hope for the future
