A Touch Of Love


You were six months old
And full of fun,
With a blink of my eye,
You suddenly were one!

There were so many things
We were going to do,
But I turned my head
And you turned two!

At two, you were very
Dependent on me,
But independence took over
When you turned three!

Your third birthday,
Another year I tried to ignore,
But when I lit the candles,
There weren't three ... but four!

Four was the year
That you really strived,
Why, look at you now,
You're already five!

Now you are ready
For books and rules,
This is the year
That you go to school!

The big day came;
You were anxious to go,
We walked to the bus,
Going, oh so slow!

As you climbed aboard
And waved goodbye,
I felt a lump in my throat
And tears stung my eyes.

Time goes so fast,
It's hard to believe
That just yesterday you were home,
Here, with me.

And tomorrow when the bus brings you home
And you jump to the ground,
You'll be wearing your cap
And graduation gown.

So I'm holding to these moments
As hard as I can,
Because the next time I look,
I'll be seeing a grown man!
