About the Poem
I wrote this poem in 1986 because I couldn't find a high school graduation card that said exactly how I felt about my daughter.
|by A. Mother|
|It seems like only yesterday
I watched you leave for school
For the very first time.
Now it is twelve short years later
And I'm watching a young woman,
Ready to challenge life for the first time.
In a few short weeks
You'll be going off to college
And it will be another first time.
Life is made up of many first times.
The first time you ride a bike,
The first time you fall in love,
The first time you see your baby's face
And the first time you realize your little girl
Has become a young woman
Of whom you can be extremely proud.
I love you and wish for you a life of many exciting first times.
Seize them all and enjoy your future.
