The day I first laid eyes on you
Our mornings were as bright as sunlight!
Though words need not be spoken, true
A reason to hug you all night.
With your first little steps, you stumble
I cringe yet I want you to learn.
Because when you’re all grown up and able
Take heed, think and patiently listen
Told you stories as if we have lived them!
Felt like a hero for you my little one.
Rescuing you from the hurt and sadness,
Find comfort from life’s brutal test.
Have you ever wondered why you came to love?
A place called Heaven, up above.
The Angels, Mary and the Holy Trinity.
They are more than heroes; that is what I want you to see!
Time spins so fast, I noticed you’re now taller than me!
And like a beautiful sunset, let our memories be.
Though you’re still my baby, I know you’d understand.
This cycle teaches us why we need to hold hands.
Never cry nor regret what had gone by
Be thankful for life, avoid asking why?
Endings are the start of someone else’s journey.
But for now, let my indulgence, walk with me…
