I sit as I watch my daughter of 26 primp up and flash out the door

And she leaves and she leaves and she leaves

How I long for her to stay with me and watch movies

How I long for her to want to stay home and just talk

And do nothing but ask how my day went

How I long for her pace to slow as slow as my pace

Just to keep me company as my day slows just to me and my walls

But she has a life to live that doesn’t include me anymore

And I know it’s a happy good life with a good mate

So instead I will sit and I will watch my happy princess

As she leaves and leaves and leaves

And my heart swells with happiness

Because this is what I wished for

So long ago

    Hmmm…I can relate to those bittersweet feelings. It is hard to watch our babies become women…but it is a beautiful sight! I was smiling while I read this! Thank you for this poem


    1. If you could see my Princess!! She is the most beautiful girl in the world!! Her name is Sarah….it means princess…she truly is a princess in my heart…and I wish her all the happiness in the world!!! And I know she is going to have it because I wished for it!!!
