But for A Moment – Poem

I close my eyes but for a moment
and then I see our 15 week old
peacefully asleep
after long day
of being adorable,
lighting up smiles in others,
exploring her hands and toys
and making her parents tear up
with unspeakable joy.

I close my eyes but for a moment
and then I see our 15-month-old
peacefully asleep
after a long day
of running, walking, hopping,
telling delightful stories,
exploring her world
and making her parents laugh.

I close my eyes for but a moment
then I see our 15-year-old
peacefully asleep
after a long day at school
building friendships,
exploring talents,
finding her own way to make a difference
and making her parents proud.

I close my eyes for but a moment
and 15 years have passed
our daughter has found a passionate career,
her souls mirror,
and a baby to love
and now making new grandparents tear up
with unspeakable joy.

I close my eyes for but a moment
and the gift of life and it’s timeless love carries on.
