A Child's Letter
Dear Mommy, Dear Daddy,
I’m your child, I’m your dance
I’m your music, your young romance
I’m your magic looking glass reflecting you.
I’m your greatest work of art
Created deep within your heart
I’m your wonder, your miracle of love.
See my hand prints on the wall
Hear my laughter down the hall
A symphony of sight and sound you can’t compare
O happy me just being me
In a timeless reverie I’m your wonder, your miracle of love.
I’d like your child within today
To come out with me and play
I’ll bring back memories that set you free
Of cowboy boots and dressing dolls
A caterpillar’s lazy crawl I’m your wonder, your miracle of love.
I’m the treasure that you seek
And I’m right here at your feet
I’ll bring you priceless pearls of wisdom if you choose
A wealth of joy I’ll give to you
Oh...P.S. I love you too
Cause you’re my wonder, my miracle of love
Oh, you and me can be a first
We can play with this whole universe
It’s a wonder, it’s a miracle of LOVE!
Thank you for today in allowing me to play
With magic, story, dance and song
Remembering all the while I’m not hampered as a child
But am wise, courageous, beautiful and strong.
So help me I implore to continue to explore
Life and all its many avenues
Highs and lows, both joy and pain
Noise and silence, loss and gain
And responsibility for all I choose.
For then I’ll understand
How to serve and to command
Destiny, in accordance with God’s Plan
And when my days of little me
Become known as history
And I have walked beyond a child’s land
I’ll remember you and me
And your love that set me free
On my journey to discover who I am.
Thank you, thank you
Gratias, merci beaucoup
Mommy, Daddy, Thank you.
About Judy Rainbow
"I published WEE WIZARDS ONE-DER KIT in 1996. It was a compilation of songs and short stories targeting 4-8 y/o's. It was meant as a teaching tool for teachers and parents to emphasize self-love and the oneness of all people and things. My desire was to lay a fertile foundation of love and respect for one's self, all others, and also show the connection we have to our environment and nature."
