Whispers

by
Sue Chandler

A child's love is like a whisper,
given in little ways we do not hear
but if you listen closely it will be very clear.

They often do not say it loud but in how they come to you...
Daddy will you play with me?
Mommy, tie my shoe?

...the many ways they tell you changes as they grow
Dad I made the team today!
Mom I've got to go!

Pop I need some money
You see there's... this girl at school...
Mama I met a boy today and wow he is so cool...!

Dad I've got something to tell you...
I think she is the one.
Mom, He asked me to marry him.
Would you love him as your son?

Dad I've got some news for you...
It's gonna be a boy!
Mom I'm kind of scared of this, yet I'm filled with joy!

A child's love is like a whisper,
given in little ways we do not hear
but if you listen closely it will be very clear.

They often do not say it loud but in how they come to you...
Grandpa will you play with me?
Grandma tie my shoe...

It is never ending
A blessing from above
Listen to the whispers of a child's love.
