I hadn’t seen you in quite some time
I didn’t realize how much I missed you until you walked by
Something about you looked different, but I couldn’t place my finger
But I was trying not to be rude so I didn’t let my eyes linger
That’s when she walked over
A teeny tiny version of you
I would’ve known that face anywhere
She looked like she was about two
Oh, her jet black curly hair!
I wanted to stop you
I wanted to talk
But I couldn’t get my feet to move
They had forgotten how to walk
No words would come out
I gave talking my best try
All I could seem to get out was a soul cleansing cry
Because I saw you today and
You’re a mommy now.
I figured you would be, but of course I was cynical.
But for myself, I saw your baby girl
And she was beautiful.
