Time it molds and shapes.
Moves us from stage to stage.
Stretches us to grow, change, live.
Time it teaches.
Showing us life and love.
Changing our words for beginning babbles to deeper conversations.
Time it shifts things.
Growing our small, soft bodies that fit so perfectly in mother’s arms
Into tall, thin, lanky.
Now with time my head fits under you chin when we hug.
Now with time instead of bending my head to snuggle your neck,
I lift my head to warm my cold nose!
Now with time your hands and feet are bigger than mine.
Now with time there aren’t times of play, but times of discussion.
Now with time you are growing more independent.
Now with time you are another year older.
Now with time your voice is deeper.
Now with time you are developing a growing sense of who you are.
Now with time you are and always will be my sweet, precious son!
