My daughter/My son

Submitted By: Rosjen

My daughter/My son

when you were born
I held you in my arms
and just kept smiling at you
You always smiled back
your big eyes wide open
full of love
Now
as I watch you grow up
and become your own person
I look at you
your laughter
your happiness
your simplicity
your beauty
and I wonder where you will be
in fifteen years
and I wonder
where the world will be
in fifteen years
I just hope that you will
be able to enjoy a life
of sensitivity
goodness
accomplishment
and love
in a world that is at peace
But most of all
I want you to know that
I am very proud of you
and that I love you dearly.
