Life's Sweetest Agony - Watching Them Grow
Token gestures line a road filled with blocks and much debris
Youthful aspirations give us the gumption to face uncertainty
The paths we tread are treacherous, jagged, and unkind
It's amazing how the little things help to pass the time
For me that little thing
Is not so little at all
She's growing like a weed
And getting pretty tall
In the morning we sing along
To Darius Rucker singing "our song"
My heart breaks cause he's singing the sad truth I know
That "It won't be like this for long"
The days with her are flying past
Each one's a cold retreat
It's like visiting the best of me
Without ever leaving my seat
The leaps and bounds of progress mound
Up more and more every day
There's a brilliant light in your eyes
That is sure to light your way
For me each day is double edged
Because as I watch her grow
I realize the hardest thing I will ever do
One day I'll have to let her go
There's sweet agony in the air
As I teach her every day
When we walk to watch the geese
And in our bedtime routine as she listens to me pray
Now I lay me down down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
May the angels watch me through the night
Until I wake in the morning light
We give "nice hugs" and kisses after she cuts out the light
Last thing we do is nuzzle our noses, much to my delight
Unicorn is right beside you, panda, and moo moo
God protect this precious child, help her to be true
Guide my hand in days to come
There's something special in this "little one"
Grant me your wisdom to be my guide
Help me build the craft so that she can glide
Thank you for reading my poem
