Little hand prints on the window
Memories captured in time
Even if I wanted to wipe them away,
How could I?
The imprint is implanted now
A moment forever frozen
In the chambers of my heart
A treasured token

If only I could relive
Each and every day
That has passed swifter than the last
Until fading faintly away
That is impossible wishing
And impervious to logic
Surpassing all known laws of nature
Beyond even Merlin’s magic

So instead I will accept change
As she will most surely grow
And cherish as long as I can
Little hand prints on the window


(For my daughter, Madeleine)

This is precious! How fast they grow. This reminded me of a poem I have hung on my wall.

Excuse This House

Some houses try to hide the fact
that children shelter there~
Ours boasts of it quite openly,
The signs are everywhere~
For smears are on the windows,
Little smudges on the door;
I should apologize, I guess
For toys strewn on the floor
But I sat down with the children
And we played & laughed & read;
And if the doorbell doesn't shine~
Their eyes will shine instead.
For when at times I'm forced to choose
The one job or the other;
I want to be a housewife~
But first I'll be a mother.

 <*\\\><    

YOUR LIFE IS NOT A COINCIDENCE. IT'S A REFLECTION OF YOU!

those before mentioned chambers...
they shine in this poem.
love this one jer,
stalking your chambers *S*
your jm

 ...every moment of every day...
your still with me in every way.
every poem and song...
every rhyme and verse...
your still here...like a beautiful curse.

I really enjoyed the way you expressed, so poignantly, your sentiment here. Wonderfully written.

As a father of 2 I can totally relate to this poem. Great read. Thank you for reminding me of the joys of being a parent.
It is so easy to forget sometimes.

Awwwww.... =)

 "The storm rises up when the shadows descend
every beat of my heart every day without end
I will stand like a rock I will bend till I break
till theres no more to give if thats what it takes
I will risk everything I will fight I will bleed
I will lay down my life if thats what you need
every second I live thats the promise I make"

I have no idea who wrote this... tell me if you know. =)

speaking of poems hung on the wall,my son brought this home from school one day his first grade class had done handpainting and pasted to the paper on which his handprints were painted was this..

Sometimes you get discouraged, because i am so small and always leave my fingerprints on the furniture and walls.

But everyday i am growing. I`ll be grown up someday and all these tiny handprints will surely fade away.

So here`s a set of handprints so that you may recall exactly how my fingers looked when i was very small.
Christmas 1998      
signed i love you ,Taylor

this is one of my most prized possessions so i can relate to your wonderful poem
