- I Remember -

Looking through my photo's at a time that's long since past,
Where did all those years go? They all flew by so fast!

I remember as if yesterday when they first began to crawl,
I remember the first steps they took, standing proud and tall.

I remember the first bike ride with no training wheels at all,
And then cleaning up their cuts and scraps after that first fall.

I remember their first day of school and waiting for the bus,
Looking through their backpacks wondering if I packed enough.

I remember their first school dance, I remember their first date,
Yelling out the door at them “don't stay out too late”

Looking through my photos and seeing how they have grown,
Knowing that it won't be long before they venture on their own.

How proud I am to see them growing more mature each day,
But looking through my photos I remember missing yesterday.
