Where did the years go

Offen do I wonder

Where do the days go

Time passes mysteriously

Suddenly your baby is fifteen years old

It wasn’t like you missed it

You saw them every day

You gave them hugs and tucked them in

You laughed away your days

But one day you wake up

To find your little sprot

Has grown a few inches taller

Has broadened out and shot


Taller than you

Taller than all

Where did those fifteen years go?

And that is something I never thought I’d say.

  1. It is so true. I look at my adult kids and still see them as the babies I held.
