I cherish this moment

I cherish this moment

For in this moment
I am delighted and amazed
My daughter is precious
Her words and thoughts capture my imagination
I wonder at the way she views the world

My heart is warmed as I realise her growth,
her development and understanding of life
With simple joy and bliss
she smiles and giggles
and I can’t help but respond

I wonder if I felt this way
with my older daughter
It seems so long ago
I can’t remember…
Maybe I did

Yet with each day
New stages grabbed my attention
and gradually the excitement gave way
to schoolwork and clothes and mess
and I find myself nagging more than praising

It seems so hard to relive the wonder
I once felt with her as a little child
I look at my teenager and think
Who is this person?
The one who once clung to me is now growing
independent and different and separate

And so with my little one
I think of what lies ahead
and I look at her and smile
and hold tight
to the mere delight
of watching and being with her
and I cherish every moment
