Oh what a sight!!
Acting as a clown not bothered by people around,
Getting their way anyhow, no matter what the rebound..
Crying to get attention, shouting to relieve their tension,
Oh and acting silly as well, forgot to mention..
For their one smile, I could sacrifice my million tears,
For them, I would fight, put away their deepest fears..
In a moment, a silver lining appears
When a smile surfaces from the tears
Oh what a sight, wish to hold it for years..
They make me crazy, they keep me alive
They make me tick, they make me dive
Oh what a sight, as we share a high five..
Each battle in life they fight,
You are holding on to them tight,
Not letting them out of sight..
But the sun is shining on them bright,
It’s time for them to take the flight
And sit back to enjoy the sight..
You hope that you gave them your best
Not wishing for gratitude in return,
But the promise that they too will put in their best..
No holding them back
No more cutting them some slack
But still always having their back
This is what love is like..
Maybe this is what having a child feels like..
Maybe this is what a deep connection feels like..
Oh what a sight, as I see them in the world’s limelight!
