As we visited with our daughter and grandchildren the other night

we were reminded of the moment each was born. 

Oh, how we celebrated that day.

at that moment we didn’t care if they would grow up 

to be bi 

or straight 

or gay.


We only cared they were alive…

had all their body parts...

that they were breathing on their own…

and came with healthy hearts.


And we’ve been blessed that three healthy children 

and four healthy grandchildren have come our way.

And as they’ve grown we still don’t care...

if they are bi

or straight

or gay.


We only care that they are close to us…

that in their lives...we play a part

that they all have gentle souls…

and kindness in their hearts


The reason is quite simple…

and to this we both avow

If we didn’t care when they were born...

Why...would we care now?
