What A Decade Does

              this photo was taken ten years ago.my daughter found it recently and it stirred up memories of these days when everyone was little.A few look slightly out of sorts and I'm wondering why,? My two year old here is twelve now, when I found this picture I gave her a hug...'to make up for that day I said'...

Ten years, oh the difference they have made.
So much has changed, and so much has stayed.
I wish I could stop that hand of time
Before it steals from me more moments divine.

Ten years ago, your needs were small.
To be loved and cared for, that was all.
Now at times I wish I could stay
By your sides and keep all harm away.

Ten years have shown me loves precious face
As I watched you grow and explore your place
In this great, big world -  that is ever so small
And you fly a little and occasionally fall.

Ten years from now, I'll look back on this
With fondness, and cherish it's tender bliss.
I'll remember when you were all here at home
And I'll pray that your heart never feels alone.


  1. Lucy,
    Oh, how the time goes by, doesn't it? I love the pictures of them little and them now. My oldest is now 31, that blows me away. The poem is precious, and you are such a wonderful mother.

  3. Lucy, they are beautiful! Now the tears on my face after reading your words? Not so much, but thank you:) It's all tender and true. Ten years goes too fast when it comes to the time we have with them, it seems. Your family shines in such good ways, I can tell. Blessings to you all in 2013. Loved this and am so glad you captured it here.
