I Saw Today

(Memories of birthdays past)

I saw today my baby’s start

 Opened her eyes and stole my heart


 I saw today her smile at me

 We brought her home, safe as can be


 I saw today her tucked in bed

 Gently leaned over to kiss her head


 I saw today my baby weep

 Snuggled her gently back to sleep


 I saw today my baby eat

 Covered from head to little feet


 I saw today my baby sit

 Then fell over in a giggle fit

 I saw today my baby crawl

 Tried to escape down the hall


 I saw today my baby stand

 Holding my finger in her hand


 I saw today my baby walk

 Then soon after began to talk


 I saw today my baby run

 Laughing and screaming, having  fun


 I saw today her surprise art

 The wall and it shall never part


 I saw today she bruised her knee

 Climbed too high and fell from the tree


 I saw today her play tattoo

 0n her belly, red, green and blue


I saw today her find a cat

Opened the door and that was that

I saw today her ride a bike

Though too young to be off  her  trike


I saw today she learned to swim

Tub’s full, splashes over the rim


I saw today her play a song

Tiny violin with bow so long

I saw today my baby grew

She had to shop for something new


I saw today her off to school

Not holding hands, acting cool


I saw today she was funny

On the coach napping with bunny


I saw today her go to the dance

Just for fun and not for romance

I saw today her drive a car

I hope she doesn’t go too far


I saw today her graduate

Then off to college, she’ll do great


I saw today my baby grown

Off to the city, on her own


I saw today her new career

Making art for people to wear


I saw today she’s just like us

The best of both, with little fuss


The Beginning
