My Children Are My Teachers

The days may not always be easy

And some nights may be filled with tears

But the love that overwhelms my heart when I look at you

Would last ten lifetimes plus infinity years

When you first entered the world, I had it all wrong

I thought my sole job was to protect and teach you

But by and by I’m seeing it differently

I now think I know my truth

Yes, there's a lot to teach

Because there's so much you don’t know

But the more I look in your eyes and see who you are

I understand that you were placed with me to help heal my soul

When I allow you to speak and listen to you

You speak so profoundly in the simplest of ways

You ask me questions that make me dig deep

As we converse with a deep soul gaze
