To my babies

To my babies:

If you’re crying and you want to be held, I will always hold you.

I don’t need to “toughen you up”.
The world will make you tough enough.

My job is to show you loving arms,

to keep you tender.

Because, my only fear is that you’ll be too afraid to feel or too afraid to express it.

Babies; it’s safe to feel. It’s safe to express it.

and I love you eternally.
