Wings To Fly



You came to me on a sunny November day.
You were so precious to hold in my arms to stay.
At first it was hard, you would hurt and cry.
I loved you so much, you touched my heart inside.
You are growing bigger every day.
I know I must let you walk away.
Down in my heart from here to the sky.
You are taking steps with wings to fly.
I am so proud of all that you are.
You will always be my shining star.
Your first day of Kindergarten is finally here.
I know you are excited that is perfectly clear.
Mommy will walk with you and kiss you goodbye.
Spread your wings precious girl it's time to fly.

My grandchild, celebrates her first birthday on November 10th and her mother and my son, have put their heart and soul into raising her and I thought that this time last year they were preparing her nest and this year by preparing a family and friends enchanted fairy party for us all that they are preparing for her to spread her wings and fly in a fairytale way. I am so proud of them both and thankful for their gift of a beautiful angel into our lives and this is how I happened upon this poem.
