Our children can be our greatest teachers

When you look at me


Remember how small I really am

Remember how I make you feel when I hug you

Remember how I can melt your heart with love


When you lose your patience


Remember, my hands need to explore

Remember, my mind needs to ask questions

Remember, my soul needs your attention


When the world seems overwhelming


Remember to teach me about God’s love

Remember to teach about kindness to others

Remember to teach me that I can make a difference in this world


When we are together


Remember to laugh with me

Remember to cry with me

Remember to celebrate life with me


When we disagree


Remember, I have lessons to learn

Remember, you have lessons to learn also

Remember, I am a blessing


But most importantly at every moment

Remember how very much I love you.

Fabulous poem and more so, excellent standards to live by. Nothing so pure and innocent as seen through the eyes of a child. Peace, Love and God's Blessings To You and Yours Always, Paul.

You are indeed a wise Mommy! The best line is: "Remember, you have lessons to learn also." and I love, "Remember, I am a blessing."
I like the style you've used. Each verse makes a lot of sense; overall, it is great!
