Our Kids

When they take their first breath,
It takes our breath away.
When they take their first step,
We always remember that day.

The first day of kindergarten
We turn away to cry.
How excited they were,
They wouldn’t understand why.

Then there was their first date;
Oh, how fast they grew.
It seems like in a blink of an eye.
Wasn’t it just yesterday they were two?

Then the day we always knew would come;
They are now all grown.
Through their teen years they survived,
And now they have a family of their own.

When we look into our grandbabies’ faces,
It takes our breath away.
We see how much they look like them
And we brush our tears away.
