Choices I Made

I think about the choices I have made along the way
The good, the bad, and the ones that seemed to work out okay
Some made with my heart and some made with my head
Some made in the heat and some made with a sense of dread
Of all the choices I have made
None can come close to the ones that brought you all here
The ones that ended up with the births of your beautiful faces
The ones that ended up with my life changed forever
Everyday I look at all of you
And wonder in amazement
To watch you all blossom and grow
Becoming your own persons with a sense of wonder in your eyes
I’m so hopeful for your futures
So anxious to see who you all become
So excited that we’re a family
So proud to know we are all one
Never forget for a second
How much you all are loved
How happy you have made me
How you were all chosen
Like a deck of cards you must learn to deal with life as it is dealt
You must hold your chin up and walk tall
Let no one ever force you to be shorter than you really are
Stand tall, Stand strong, and your strength will guide you
If I could I would remove all your fears
If I could I would remove all your tears
If I could I would make life painless
If I could I would give you all your courage
I will always be by your side even if you can’t see me
I will always be in your heart even if you can’t feel me
Listen in the wind and you will hear my whispers and feel my hand
Stand tall, Stand strong, and your strength will guide you
