Show and Teach

as parents we are charged
to show and teach
our children

how to live
how to give
how to serve
how to love
how to forgive
how to win
how to lose
and
how to die

looking back I feel that
I failed more than I
succeeded but
did the best
I could

before you know
it there is more
time behind
you than
ahead of
you

looking forward
seven down
and one
to go
