Children of God by Marie Sharp
Clear

Girl and Boy Reading Book

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not
to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries
with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
