You're Growing Up!

I have not written a poem in a long while. So, here is one dedicated for my little sweetheart, my girl who is now 8. Feel free to copy this poem if you like but a link back would be most appreciated. Thank you. Links to more of my poems can be found here.

For my little sweetie pie

You're Growing Up!

You're growing up sweetheart
It seems like just yesterday when I held you in my arms
And looked at your little face
Now I can't even lift you up for a closer embrace

You're so tall now sweetie
Wasn't it only days ago that you sat up and crawled
Now you're running at the malls
Zigzagging here and there not afraid to fall

You love skipping and singing little one
It makes me happy to see you happy like this
You talk a lot now too compared to your first word "daddy"
We cherish you right from the time you were a baby

You like to choose your food now dearie
That is fine because I know you are growing up
It is a lot better than those days
When you pushed out every food we brought your way

You can do so many things on your own now darling
Read and eat and draw and bathe
When once upon a time we felt anxious during separation
While it took almost a year for your toilet education

My sweetie pie, you have still a long road to travel
But I hope that each step you take
Is filled with happiness, joy and laughter,
And all the love that we can give you from now till forever after
