My Girl

I have been cleaning out Sarah’s room a bit.

She’s hardly here anymore and rarely stays the night in her room so I’m going to begin taking it over and packing up some of her stuff.

It’s only a matter of time, I feel, before she moves out completely.

Today I found this poem tucked away behind her jewelry box.

My Girl

My girl is the love of my life.
She has eyes of green that defy description.
My girl is strong and proud.
She lives her life with purpose and mission.
My girl is kind and compassionate.
She invokes love and dedication in all that know her.
My girl is bold in her faith and walk.
She carries herself with confidence and courage.
My girl doesn’t give up nor give in.
She encourages others to be just like her.
My girl is so much like her father.
She will be wise in her choice of a mate.
My girl will carry on our traditions.
She will not live her life by fate.
My girl is the love of my life.

I wrote that for Sarah for her 15th birthday. In less than two months, she will turn 19.

Fifteen seems so very far away now.

  1. In less than 2 months, my girl will be turning 14. Where has the time gone???

    I love Sarah…I can't believe she is almost 19, that doesn't even seem possible.
