Sara's Poetry Pages - Sara McDarby  




        you'll be taller than me

                        but right now

I can hold you
        while we sit in my rocking chair

and kiss the top of your head.



you'll be building a life of your own

        and I'll have only a minor
                        part in it

and I'll understand,

                but right now

I can look
                into those brightest of blue eyes

and find that shining smile
                        with the two teeth.


Someday you'll be all grown up

        and I'll be so proud of you

but right now

                I can take care of you

        and love you

                        and protect you

        and know that someday
                will be here much sooner

        than I'll be ready for.
