Let It Be Enough ~ A Poem by Kelly Crawford


Let it be enough, that just my Father sees,
The child-shaped castles that I build,
The falling on my knees.

Let it be enough, that just my Father knows,
The tasks I start and have to stop–
How fast a two-year-old goes!

Let it be enough, that just my Father feels,
My every waking moment spent
With “The Questioner” on my heels.

Let it be enough, that just my Father hears,
How many times a day I referee
Between the tears.

Let it be enough, that just my Father understands,
The messes I clean up–the toes, the bottoms, and the hands!

May I be, (without an eye to see) content to work,
Without a paycheck, no “teacher of the year” or other perk.

May I resolve, each passing day, while all around me mock,
To press on–keep investing in this sweet eternal stock!
