I have spent an eternity with you

it seems

Cradling you in my arms

smelling your hair

stroking your cheek

Days pass by

Sometimes I wonder how it is possible

watching you grow so quickly before my eyes

I see your father in your smile

I see your grandmother when you laugh

I see myself in your reflection

I am already proud of you

I am giddy with anticipation of who you will become

the things you will do

all that you will accomplish

I gently push you forward

attempting to guide you

never holding you back

but with one hand outstretched

just in case you need me
