Sarah's Poem

Sarah as a Baby

Smiles and Sweetness
Smiles and Sweetness

Dearest Sarah,

When you were first born, so tiny you were

Innocent eyes and with a heart so pure

With the smallest heart beat, a journey began

Holding you, protecting you, loving again

Smiles and baby steps, skipping rope and chess

Finger painting and learning to clean up a mess

Playschool, kindergarten and now grade six

Friends from many places make a good mix

Like a horse learning to jump so many hurtles

Higher and higher and faster than a turtle

Taller, sensitive, smarter, beautiful and funny

A young lady whose smile is bright and sunny

Baby birds, baby horses and baby brothers

With your love you gave them all a mother

Touch as soft and gentle as a butterfly

Wonderment about life dances in your eyes

Struggles, tears, laughter and lots of successes

All completed between many recesses

Stepping forward to a new junior high

I hold my breath and try not to sigh

Heart swelling, smiling, I am so proud

As I watch you in the graduating crowd

New journey begins in the fall of oh seven

I look at you and smile looking up at heaven

Congratulations my Little Princess

(Who is not so little any more)!!!!

Love you with all my heart,
