Your Life

Thinking of your birth,
Time's getting closer,
Someone's rushing to arrive,
Never prepared enough,
Arms overflowing with life,
Bundled up like a present,
Heart expanding rapidly,
Afraid to leave your side,
First smile weakens my resolve,
Grasping fingers wraps me up,
Gurgles turns to words,
Tears spill down faces,
Reaching out to others,
Tentative first steps,
Must walk before running,
Laughter leads me around,
Peek-a-boo to chases,
Games changed for bikes,
Scrapes and bandages,
Screams and tears,
Always trying to win,
Never going to quit,
Strong to the end,
Proud that you succeeded,
From Birth to Adult,
My gift to the World.
