    We Love You

    Child, I don’t know

    Why you experience such pain

    And even though I’m grown up

    I have no way to explain-

    Yet I can tell you from experience

    That life unfolds in stages

    And sometimes on our journeys

    We just need a few more pages-

    So please know you’re supported

    Even though you feel alone-

    And talk to someone that you trust

    Or call them on the phone-

    And know no matter how you feel

    You are needed on this Earth

    To share your gifts and smile

    And to see your dreams give birth-

    So I write you this love letter

    To ask you please to stay

    To tell you that we love you

    And to send this love your way~
