Children Grow So Fast

Updated on March 6, 2012
Tiny little beings to cherish and to love

Our children, the children that come into our lives as babies and grow before we have a chance to realize. They fill our lives and our hearts from the day they are born until they day we die. They are a special blessing we can never understand until we have children of our own.

Children are God's blessing
Sent from up above
Tiny little beings
To cherish and to love

Bringing new found joy
Each little girl and boy
Opens up your heart
As the new day starts

As they grow throughout the years
As they grow throughout the years | Source

Laughter mixed with tears
As they grow throughout the years
Showing Mom and Dad
Forever to be glad

Learning all the new things
Each new baby's smile brings
As they begin to grow
They will begin to show
A new love in your heart
When you start to play the part
Of Mother and of Dad
Like the ones you used to have

They learn to walk and talk
And may soon begin to balk
When you're showing your affection
By giving them direction
They're not babies anymore
When their birthday comes at four

He's gone through school and graduated
He's gone through school and graduated | Source

Without noticing the years go by
Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you cry
The baby thinks that he is grown
Making decisions on his own
He's gone through school and graduated
Faster than you anticipated
He starts to do things old and new
He even looks a lot like you

His growing up
His growing up | Source

There comes a time when you must face
His growing up with as much grace
As you can muster to believe
There comes a time when he will leave

You sit and think about that baby
And wonder if, well just maybe
He will remember all you've done
When he became your day, your "sun"

      So true Au Fait. Seems like a blink of an eye and they're grown and on their own. Thanks for reading.

      Time does indeed go so quickly! I miss my little one, but I'm so proud of my grown up daughter too, now 26. We can't keep them from growing up nor would we want to, but couldn't we slow the passing of time a little? :)

      Voted up and BAI

      They do grow up so fast. One minute they are babies, the next they are on their way to college. Where do the years go?

      Lovely poem tillsontitan. Parents always love to think that their children are still babies even they are already grown up. Thanks for sharing and I enjoyed your pictures too.

      Thanks Vinaya. I think all parents feel this way. There are times we think our children will never grow up 'cause they're driving us crazy but we know that's not true. We love them to pieces and know these are passing fancies. Once they start school the years fly by and then they're gone!

      I'm not a parent, but maybe this is what my writer father thinks about me. Feels so wonderful to read this poem.

      You're half right Bob, not monsters just teenagers...the rest goes without saying.

      Crazy Mags, love that saying!

      Peg the older we get the faster they grow!

      You've only just begun tireless, before you know it he'll be walking!

      Then there are grandchildren who steal your heart and grow so fast you can't believe it. Where did the last 3 months go and how did my little grandson go from 7 pounds to 14 in such a short time. Love your hub. It truly reveals the heart of parents.

      So true. They grow up so fast.

      I liked this. Recently, I heard someone say "our children are our hearts walking around in the world." I remember the moment my beautiful girl was born and I don't know how four and a half years have passed. I try to cherish every moment I have with her.

      Then they become teenage monsters!

      Nice verse.
