I wonder
if she knows,
this child of mine,
just how much
I watch her.
And laugh.
And learn.

This life,
the one I dreamed of
for myself,
the one I prayed
for her.
The one she now holds
close, and tight,
to her heart.

Boldly she steps forth
to embrace,
to laugh,
to learn.
With him there,
she's never alone.

So I watch,
and I wish,
and I am thankful.
I am so thankful.
