Let Me Mother

Let me Mother my children my own way.

Let me teach them and guide them, find the talents inside them.

Let me praise them, advise them, never judge nor chastise them.

Let me tell them how often they impress and inspire me,

How I value their thoughts and believe them entirely.

Let them grow without boundaries or fear of rejection.

Let me listen and learn and acknowledge their questions.

Let me show them integrity through my words and my actions,

So they know to treat all with respect and compassion.

Let me speak to their hearts in words they’ll remember.

Let me open their minds to their dreams.

Above all, let me Mother my children my own way.

Let me Mother my children with Love.
