Caring . . .
It’s very important,
Like the power to heal,
Like a balm that soothes pain.
When a child feels reassured that someone cares,
An occasional a hug, a loving kiss
Prep talks of encouragement and lots of patience
Just to show that I really care.
“My child, I love you,
“If you have any troubles, come to me.
“So what if you slipped and messed up,
I’m there for you”.
. . . Caring.
