Life Does Not Go Backwards...

Came across this lovely work of words HERE...

Golden words I must say...

The following verse by Kahlil Gibran is something we, as parents, need to remember:

“Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.”

Read the next paragraph of this poem... I believe that it is taken out of context. You might want to edit this post with the full message.
