FOREVER IN YOUR HEART
Although you’re not their parent,
You care for them each day.
You cuddle, sing, and read to them
and watch them as they play.
You see each new accomplishment
You help them grow and learn.
You understand their language
and you listen with concern.
They come to you for comfort
and you kiss away their tears.
They proudly show their work to you
You give the loudest cheers!
No, you are not their parent
but your role is just as strong.
You nurture them and keep them safe
though maybe not for long.
You know someday the time will come
when you will have to part.
But you know each child you’ve cared for
is FOREVER IN YOUR HEART!
