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.


-from Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet

ahhhhhh. What a cute smile! I really like that poem, too. I've heard the "The Prophet", just haven't read it. I think I should!
