I journey in my mind today
to watch the years fly by,
Where are my little children?
The pictures that tell the story
of how they grew so fast,
Once little boys and girls with little plastic army men, coke caps and dolls to fill their days.
In an instant their world changed forever,
Their journey in life on a new path,
One filled with crayons, finger-paint and giggles.
Finding pleasure in everyday things,
the world looked brand new..
I never thought I could love my children more,
But on the day when they placed my grandchildren in my arms
I swear I did.
I realize what a gift we received.
My child's child,
Amazed as I kiss their soft cheeks.
I will reach for my childs hand,
to offer encouragement and support.
Yesterday's memories tucked away in my heart.
Looking forward to what tomorrow will bring.
Amazed by the love I have for each of them.
A part of my soul they now pass on.
