"...If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be Enthusiasm...."
I admire her from afar when she aims
casting her cares and focusing on her goals
like an arrow flying to a target's center
Her life to this point is clear---focused and strong
My admiration and love...
Her spirit fires and burn these past years
Oh, I may observe and honor her
I wonder whose spirit she has?
Entirely her own and no one else comes back...
Maybe she knows her birth
When pain ushered God's beautiful creation
She, lying there with my wife
Quickly she grew, now 22 years hence...
Oh, I hope I am there for her
Seems like life does get in the way
Interruptions, sickness, schedule and the like...
Easy though, we know, the life is in front of us
Churning ever so forward
I hope my daughter remembers
She is special beyond all hope...
