YOU ARE SO SPECIAL TO ME

YOU ARE SO SPECIAL TO ME

From Chicken Soup for the Working Mom's Soul

You Are So Special to Me

You have loved me since you met me
I was only five weeks old

When mommy went to work
You were there for me to hold

I thank you for your loving arms
That keep me safe all day

For taking care of me so well
In your special loving way

I know you’re not my mommy
Though you treat me as your own

I am so blessed to have you
And will love you till I’m grown

I know I’m just a baby
And I need you by my side

To teach me how to do things
And which rules I must abide

I think you are my special angel
Your wings I cannot see

For all these things and more you do
You are so special to me

POSTSCRIPT: Being a working mom it is such a blessing when you find someone who cares for and loves your child as much as you do. I dedicate this poem to all the day-care providers who give so much of themselves to the children they care for. Every day I thank God for blessing me and my son, Justice, with an angel of our own to watch over him.
