Although I'm not their mother however I care for them each day
I cuddle, sing, and read to them and watch them as they play
I see each new accomplishment and help them grow and learn
I understand their language and I listen with concern
They come to me for comfort and I kiss away their tears
They proudly show their work to me in which I give the loudest
I know that i'm not their mother but my role is just as strong
I nurture them and keep them safe though maybe not for
I know someday the time may come when we will have to part.
We'll be sorry you are leaving and so sad to see you go
When you feel like visiting then we're always here you know.
