IF ONLY I KNEW

When my child was born, I thought I had to compete
I worked hard to provide, fifty hours a week.
My child had everything. The best schools, clothes and games.
ďIím too busy now, honeyĒ, is all I would say.

ďMom and Dad work hard to give you nice things.Ē
My words didnít comfort, instead they would sting.
My brave, trusting child would smile and wait,
For the day when Iíd notice the look on his face.

It seemed but a moment before he was grown.
A new car, a new job and out on his own.
As I watched him drive off, my mind filled with regrets,
For the one thing he wanted, didnít cost me a cent.

My big house, fancy car and savings account
Canít bring back the moments I quickly threw out.
He waved and was gone, and I realized my shame.
I was filled with regrets and had no one to blame.

Realizing Iíd denied my best investment of all,
Was the most painful moment I can ever recall.
If only Iíd cancelled more meetings and dates,
To have cherished those moments, but now itís too late.

Make your job as a parent your number one mission.
Take time, thought and prayer with this God given position.
Invest in your child with time, love and patience.
Itís the most important decision of all lifes events.
