En fin dikt…


😛 En fin dikt, som jag inte skrivit, dock…
(vet inte vem som skrivit den heller)

TO MY CHILD

😛 Just for this morning,
I am going to smile when I see your face
and laugh when I feel like crying.

😛 Just for this morning,
I will let you choose what you want to wear,
and smile and say how perfect it is.

😛 Just for this morning,
I will leave the dishes in the sink,
and let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.

😛 Just for this afternoon,
I will not yell once,
not even a tiny grumble when
you scream and whine for the ice cream truck,
and I will buy you one if he comes by.

😛 Just for this afternoon,
I will let you help me bake cookies,
and I wont stand over you trying to fix them.

😛 Just for this evening,
I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story
about how you were born and how much I love you.

😛 Just for this evening,
I will let you splash in the tub
and not get angry.

😛 Just for this evening,
when I run my finger through your hair as you pray,
I will simply be grateful that God has given
me the greatest gift ever given.

😛 I will think about the mothers and fathers
who are searching for their missing children.
The mothers and fathers
who are visiting their childrens graves
instead of their bedrooms.
The mothers and fathers
who are in hospital rooms
watching their children suffer senselessly
and screaming inside that they cant handle it anymore.

😛 And when I kiss you goodnight
I will hold you a little tighter, a little longer.
It is then, that I will thank God for you,
and ask him for nothing,
except one more day…
