To My Child: A poem that touched my heart

TO MY CHILD . . .
Author Unknown
November 29, 2009

Just for this morning, I am going to smile when I see your face and
laugh when I feel like crying.

Just for this morning, I will let you choose what you want to wear,
and smile and say how perfect it is.

Just for this morning, I am going to step over the laundry, and pick
you up and take you to the park to play.

Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let
you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.

Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the telephone and keep the
computer off, and sit with you in the backyard and blow bubbles.

Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble
when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck, and I will buy you
one if he comes by.

Just for this afternoon, I won’t worry about what you are going to be
when you grow up, or second-guess every decision I have made where you
are concerned.

Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me bake cookies, and I
won’t stand over you trying to fix them.

Just for this afternoon, I will take us to McDonald’s and buy us both
a Happy Meal so you can have both toys.

Just for this evening, I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story
about how you were born and how much I love you.

Just for this evening, I will let you splash in the tub and not get
angry.

Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the
porch and count all the stars.

Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside you for hours, and miss
my favorite TV shows.

Just for this evening when I run my finger through your hair as you
pray,

I will simply be grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever
given.
