A buddy, a pal, an amigo, a friend, a bestie for life until the very end.
Spend half as much money, twice as much time, sing them a song, or even a nursery rhyme.
A hug when they cry, a soft cuddle whilst they sleep, kiss their little toes, and tickle those tiny feet.
Hold them in your arms, yet let them run free, exploration of their senses, to smell, touch, feel and see.
Teach them to love, to share and to give, the power of kindness in this world which we live.
Express no posession, just unconditional love, they shall spread their wings wide, like those of a dove.
In times of need and when they cry, keep them close and wipe those tears dry.
Away from the screens, outdoors is more fun, to run and to play in fresh air and the sun.
Grow them and nurture them until the very end, our little angels, a little godsend.
A pinch of respect, rules and some trust, loyalty and love, happiness is a must.
Good morals and kindness, empathy too, a good base in life will see them through.
A teaspoon of guidance, a cup of delight, add some sweet sugar, a bit of brave spice, mix all of the above and the last bit too, stir it well, through and through, dear parents there you have it, the potion to…the happiest and sweetest child for you!
