I feel home

Updated on September 30, 2012

I watch you growing quickly

Too fast now that your gone

Always wearing new shoes

And singing different songs


I never noticed you age

Ignorant to all the bliss

That happens when your not here

These precious times I miss


But still you see the world with wonder

Every word a new request

To fill your head with knowledge

In your unrelenting quest


You wonder still excites you

As wisdom falls from your skies

And I still feel such deep pride

When I look into your eyes


You tell me all of the things

Of this world of which your shown

And only when I'm with you

Do I know that I'm home

      This is by far my favorite out of the three poems I have just read. Even though the last three I have read could be combined into one story. It is difficult to find the words to explain the feelings I have when I watch my children grow, sometimes they find me. Thank you for sharing. Jamie
