We wished our children are nurses or doctors.
And breastfed them as long as possible
As I did for 18m for my firstborn son and 3 yrs, at night for my daughter
Bless are those with loving children
Who cares for them when they’re sick
We laminate their diplomas in wood.
And proud to adorn our living rooms with their achievements.
We center our lives for them when they’re young
And at times until they have children
We forgo of our time to care for our grandchildren
Making sure that all can afford quality childcare.
We cook even for the exes of our daughters and sons.
We work until we are too old to move to help fund our grandchildren in college
We guard them when they’re young
Ensuring only positive energy at home
Even when we wish to scream
So, at the end we always sing to them before they go to sleep
Rock a bye baby and I love you forever and for always.
