Grateful I Am For It All©

From head to toe

I watch them grow

Each year they shed

Makes me sigh

As I know they’re closer to leaving

But I know as they grow

Their minds expand

And they turn into someone I can be proud of

It amazes me as I begin to see

Just how much they mirror me

They took all my words and held them close

And followed their direction

Now they stand proud as they reflect upon

Where they started and where they’ve ended

Together we molded the person they’ve become

With little regret

Some tears

But mostly blissfully happy memories

Today I can truly say I wouldn’t have changed a thing

Changing the past can often alter the goodness of a gifted end

So I opt for the bounty of all that I see before me

Grateful am I for it all
