I am new to this board, and was glad to find this topic because I, too, am always looking for poems or lyrics that help express how I feel about my children.

I always loved Bob Dylan's "Forever Young" as recorded by Joan Baez. After I had my children, it took on new meaning. Each of them has a beautiful photo in their album and the lyrics:

May God bless and keep you always. May your wishes all come true.
May you always do for others and let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars and climb on every rung.
May you stay forever young.
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous. May you grow up to be true.
May you always know the truth and see the light surrounding you.
May you always be courageous, stand upright and be strong.
May you stay forever young.
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy. May your feet always be swift.
May you have a strong foundation when the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful. May your song always be sung.
May you stay forever young.
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.
