They grow so quickly...

Have you really looked lately at our little girl
she's quickly brushing out the Shirley Temple curls.
She's putting away the ribbons and bows
and if you look closely maturity shows.

She's closing the lid on her box of toys
she's found a replacement in makeup and boys.
Teddy no longer snuggles under the spread
now he's just a decoration sitting on the bed.

The tinkling laugh of childhood is gone
replaced by girlish giggles upon the phone.
Gone are the dresses with ruffles and lace
of dolls and crayons there's not a trace.

The process was slow and unnoticed by any
but all at once the changes are many.
My Babys growing up, where did the time go?
How to turn back the clock, does anyone know?

Bittersweet write full of love. Give your love freely every moment of every day because the time passes much too quickly and then they are grown and gone......

Be safe,

The beauty lies in watching them grow...each phase precious and only comes once in a lifetime. Beautiful write.

How true! Sadly we have not yet found a way to turn back that clock... Really enjoyed your poem!
