She descends the stairs; a princess
And my mind wanders back to another time,
she pretended in my high heels and a fireman hat.
She was not quite three
Now her dress-up clothes are real,
her shoes, on feet; pedicured and perfect.
They spin around for me to admire
her hair, and to tie her sash
She came into the room a toddler
and she walks out a woman.
I watch her walk away, her blond hair
shining in the sun
Memories of my conversation,
asking God for the chance to see her
walk away from me, in a dress,
with long hair gently on her back.
His answer came perfect
and now, I can only give her back
to Him who blessed me
with this woman, my child.
