Graduation Poem

Mom's Memories Through The Years

While searching for an old yearbook of my daughter's, I came across a song she had written to me simply named "Untouchable." I then read the song and realized how safe she felt with me, "mom." How could I have known that a young girl graduating from high school felt so "untouchable" because of her mother's love. Through the loss of her father, friends, and teenage love, it was my strength that made her feel "untouchable." These are memories of her through the years.

Untouchable

Published: May 2011

On 6:26 a.m. March 28, 1993,
That's the moment you were born and my
life became complete.

Your tiny little hands, your perfect little toes,
Wondrous big eyes and "she's got your nose".

I held you so close, wrapped tightly to keep you warm,
I whispered, "You're untouchable right here in my arms."

I watched you run and play and write your name at 3,
I wiped every tear and kissed every knee.

I watched on your first day of school you were so nervous and unsure,
I whispered, "You're untouchable, Mommy's right outside the door."

Your life had many changes, decisions were made for you,
Although you tried to change them there was nothing you could do.

I watched you face a pain I thought was greater than you could bear,
Yet amazingly you looked at me and said, "Daddy's untouchable up there."

I watched you become a big sister and have a mother's heart in disguise,
I watched as your first love brought tears to your eyes.

I listened to you yell and complain about friends who were not true,
I saw you build real friendships like only you could do.

I watched you bloom into a daughter, a woman and a friend,
I watched us grow a bond that's "untouchable" till the end.

Greatest of all these things, I watched you meet God,
Now you are truly "untouchable" because of His love.
