Although I'm not his mother, I care for him each day. I cuddle, sing, and read to him, And watch him as he plays. I see each new accomplishment, and help him grow and learn, I understand his language, and I listen with concern.
He comes to me for comfort, And I kiss away his tears. He proudly show his art work to me, I give the loudest cheers! No, I am not his mother, But my role is just as strong. I nurture him, and keep him safe, Though maybe not for long. I know someday the time may come, When we will have to part, But I know each and every memory is forever in my heart!
