Poem “To Raise a child” by Nate Richardson 2.28.23

A million hugs, a million smiles, a million conversations eye to eye,

To raise a child, to feel a soul, to win with Love by and by.

In heaven for joy we shouted to come on this long journey, and day by day the joy continues, though sewn with strife it may be.

As for our part, how glad we art, to pass this way together, that night and day and day again come softly as a feather.

Now sing me a song to last the night through, and happy we will be, with smiles and laughter too.

I gather round my teddy bears (lovely dears) and keep them in my care, precious moments ever flowing, forever we will share!
