Thanks Herbert

I came across this poem and it really resonated with me in my present stage of life. Hope it inspires you to tighten your apron, smile at your kiddos more and enjoy something smothered in caramel with them.

To get his good night kiss
He stood beside my chair one night,
And raised an eager face to me
A face with love a light.
And as I gathered in my arms
The son God gave to me,
I thanked the lad for being good
And hoped he'd always be.
His little arms 'crept round my neck
And then I heard him say
Four simple words I can't forget,
Four words that made me pray.
They turned a mirror on my soul,
On secrets no one knew,
They startled me, I hear them yet,
He said,
"I'll be like you."

Herbert Parker

Thanks, Herbert
