Monday's child...I'll be there for you

I'll be there for you
when the cold wind blows
hold onto your hand
when you walk tippy toe

I'll be ther for you
on the very first day
you walk off to school
"love you...have a great day"

I'll be there for you
when you hurt your knee
when you stumble and fall
you fall from the tree

I'll be there for you
on the first time
someone breaks your precious heart
you'll always have mine

But for now
let me hold you close
sing you a lullaby
"Have sweet dreams little baby...
hush now don't you cry...

I'll be there for you..."

By mandy snow
inspiration has come from this lovely painting...go check out mondays child and give it a go..i just wrote this in 5 minutes...seriously...its not fabulous but i'm very happy with it...it reminds me of how quickly time really does fly with your little ones, and before you know it they are all grown up...so make the most of the hugs and cuddles!!!
maybe not really for a child to read, but it's what came to me to write...now i have the fun of checking out everyone elses poetry now...you're better off doing it this way as you want everything to be your own idea and not get persuaded by the other wonderful poets that enter this challenge...

until next time
lots of it mandy

Wow, you really expressed motherhood in this one...both my children are older and you are right - we are there for cuts, bruises and even broken hearts....Bravo Mandy...I am glad you like the prompt...blessings...bkm

It's just beautiful! I loved the first line and the way you would give her your heart when hers gets broken! So so sweet. It is fun doing this with you - you really are so talented, I agree with amanda about the book thing! Thank you too for your sweet comments, Kristin xo

I love this, Mandy! Sometimes I am in a rush for my son to grow older and I needed this reminder to enjoy this time when my son is young because it's already going so fast! Thank you!

You write very pretty poetry. I love to write poetry too.

I made my first pajama shorts. I actually made two. I wear them to bed every night. I am so happy with them. I should probably make some pants soon as it the weather will start getting cold. Hope you'll come take a look. By the way, I am turning 10 this weekend.
