Watching My Daughters Grow Up

My daughters were home this past week on a school break. The girls are 19 and 21. I am amazed at how grown up my children have become.  Considering those facts...this poem fits well in the stack.

So I share it with you.


Looking at you
I realize
That soon
You won’t need me

Time passed
Without my notice
And now
Your nearly ready
To go out on your own.

It’s too late now
And I can’t bring back
The past.
I must face letting
You go
With so much left unsaid.

God watch over
This woman-child of mine,
Be for her
What I cannot be
As she moves into her time.

Guard her steps,
Hold her heart,
Hold her close

To You.
