I watched you take that first small step
I watched you grow with verve and pep
I watched you fall and skin your knee
I watched you when you needed me

I watch you grow so much each day
I watch you start to move away
I watch your independence grow
I watch the seed that I did sow

I watch you prove to me each day
Your skill improves as you play
I've watched you growing up so fast
Slow it down! Make these moments last

I've watched you age from none to eight
It's gone to fast, I want to wait
All too soon, you will be all grown
What then, will I be all alone?

I've often felt this way too, Marilyn. You have put those feelings into beautiful words!
This touched me deeply.

Excellent work, Marilyn. No, we do not become alone. We simply branch out. Part of us goes with them, wherever they are. Then we get a dog.

Treasure the moments you have
each one is a jewel--and even when they get full grown, to moms they are still her babies.

Treasure every memory put them in a jewelled box. I feel this way to Marilyn, what'll I do when Dylan leaves the nest.

Beautifully done, and again your sister fully understands and feels the same. I can't offer advice only understanding and hugs

Marilyn, I often wonder all those things myself. They grow way too fast. This is truly a beautiful poem.

They are grown and gone all too soon. Greatest hope is that when they fly from the nest they have sturdy wings.
