A Gift

by =)~ BJ ~(=   Nov 27, 2005

To be graced with a child
Is a gift that at times is wild
To see them,
To know them,
To watch them grow,
To watch yourself grow,
Is one of the greatest sights
you'll ever see,
When you know where you need
to be

From their first words,
To first steps,
To countless words and countless steps,
Knowing that soon those little steps
will be walking into the big life.
Then your life flashes back
To when that gift was so
little and helpless.
And now you feel powerless,
cause they don't need us.

Till that one day they
Are graced with a gift,
A child.
