You’ve grown and matured, far beyond wise.
Still, I remember how just yesterday
I could somehow love your sorrows away.
How I miss those times when just being there,
Brought your heart comfort when you were scared.
Those talks we’d have about friends and school,
And shopping for clothes and shoes that were “cool”.
My “little one” no longer, but adult and strong,
You don’t need me to help you know right from wrong.
I’ve let go of the past and look ahead with anticipation,
Toward the joy of the future with great expectation.
Though the memories of your childhood are oh so good,
There’s nothing I’d change about you, even if I could.
