a hidden treasure

that awaits

these precious gems


they glow and glitter

never to be sold


a gift for the price

of growing old


let go of youth

it’s a trade

not to be made


we have a special place

in the hearts

of our blessings


of which

each year

there is so much gain


who would have known

we own

so much love

to give


we live

to watch them grow


their being

like petals



water them with love

and they bloom


there are no words

for these pearls

of joy


our childrens’

baby girls

and boys…
