Mothers can wait
MOTHERS CAN WAIT
If I balanced some books atop your head,
would that stop you from growing so tall?
If I make you a house from gingerbread,
Will you promise me to always stay small?
If we go to a pond for some fishing,
If I play catch with you every day;
If I show you a bright star for wishing,
Will you promise to never go away?
Why is it time will never stand still,
To allow me delight in your giggles?
Why can’t I always keep inside the thrill,
When you tiptoe and walk with wiggles?
If you could only stay a child forever,
On the beach we would build castles of sand.
I want to make memories that never,
Wash away in the tides life has planned.
So, slow down, don’t be in such a hurry,
For your tomorrows to come and to go.
I don’t want us to live with such worry,
I’d miss one second watching you grow.

Dad (Hutchins) wrote me this poem after he read a recent post about Gabe and I. I loved it and wanted to share. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
