It is a Wonder

It is a wonder to behold,
How is it that something so light and wispy
Turns into stability and strength?
From gangly and sharp angles,
To graceful beauty?

I missed so much, because it came so slowly,
I didn’t notice. I wish that I had noticed!
I did see some things, the determined walk to kindergarten,
The first time it was dance, and not play,
The singalong that became a solo.

Wisdom came while I was napping,
Compassion flowed while I was away at work!

Changed and forever the same, I am truly blessed,
To witness your unfolding, my sweet Laura!
