I remember when,
You first came home.
You’d sleep on my chest;
Total surrender. I fell in love.

I remember when,
You first went to school.
Your sister, your friend; giggling behind me,
Happy memories. I cherish them all.

I remember when,
To the pool we’d flee.
Splash for joy, fishy, fishy.
Come into my sea.

But into the past, I shouldn’t stare.
What’s important is now.

Blossoming; a lovely young women,
Let her glow by letting her go.
Her life’s hers to fathom,
Watch her confidence grow and grow.

I remember when,
I found a home for me and you.
“Don’t like our room, daddy!”
So I painted it pink, from blue.

I remember when,
You started to draw.
My favourite bird; a Peregrine Falcon.
Wild, fast and raw.

I remember when,
You first got on your bike.
You learned to ride it really fast.
But stopping it gave you a fright.

But into the past, I shouldn’t stare.
What’s important is now.

Blossoming; a lovely young women,
Let her glow by letting her go.
Her life’s hers to fathom,
Watch her confidence grow and grow.

I remember when,
You first got on a bus.
Into town; journey without me.
To your freedom, adjust.

I remember when,
You first learned to ski.
Racing down the black run.
At the chair lift, waiting for me.

I remember when,
We went to Hyper Japan.
You dressed up as Edward, looking so cool.
A picture snapped by a fan.

But into the past, I shouldn’t stare.
What’s important is now.

Blossoming; a lovely young women,
Let her glow by letting her go.
Her life’s hers to fathom,
Watch her confidence grow and grow.
