When the children have returned
life is in a place to be remembered
while our lives have become we learned
a bit wiser if not a tad more pressured
We know that the children are home again,
we have peace and know our love is real,
we dance to see their smiles; we do believe in
their ability to survive and remain the real deal
When our child returns to our home grateful,
when smiles are real and healthy grins abound
we can laugh together, be gracious and thankful
our lives are simplified by love being tossed around.
When suddenly our lives have become our own release
from the shackles of childhood, we now maintain the peace.
