I may not have any children, but many I hold close to my heart...



I may not have had any children -

but many I have rocked to sleep

Noses I've wiped - bums I've dried -

and cuddles when cutting teeth.

Holding precious little hands

 when learning how to walk,

Sounding like a broken record

when learning how to talk.

Being there to comfort them

when they were feeling ill,

And guilty as charged for tricking them

 into taking a pill.

being by their side to pick them up

 should they happen to fall,

And being on the other end of the phone

 when they wanted or needed to sing or talk.

So, I may not have any children

 but many I hold close to my heart,

I have been told by many that compared to some

I played the better part.
