Reminding me of days gone by
Years of laughter, living life
As the adored and loving wife.
Babies being born, first one than two
Cuddling in my arms, feeling love flow
From their heart to mine
Realizing there is nothing more divine.
Letting go, stretching arms to finger tips
Walking them to school hand in hand
Letting tears fall as we allow the schools
To now teach our loved ones their golden rules.
Graduation day is here and now
We realize our job has been complete
Then next we walk them down the aisle
We cry a little and also smile.
Now holding this tiny babe in our hands
Once again we burst with love
As we share our child’s child in our own two arms
Wishing a good life and for them no harm.
Yes, I was blessed with a good life
A chance to love, and share and grow
And as I look back before I die
I have no regrets nor tears in my eyes.
