Poem: Nanny Love

Although I’m not their mother,

I care for them each day.

I cuddle, read and sing to them

And watch them as they play.


I see each new accomplishment,

I help them grow and learn.

I understand their language,

I listen with concern.


They come to me for comfort,

And I kiss away their tears.

They proudly show their work to me,

I give them loudest cheers!


No, I’m not their mother,

But my role is just as strong.

I nurture them and keep them safe,

Though maybe not for long.


I know someday the time will come,

When we will have to part.

But I know each child I cared for,

Is forever in my heart!
