Why Do You Have To Grow Up?


Published by Family Friend Poems September 2011 with permission of the Author.

What has happened to the days?
What has happened to the years?
Please let me for one last time
wipe away your tears.

I used to rock you each night
with a bottle to make you sleep.
How I long to do this one more time,
your warmth and softness keep.

Babies should not be allowed to grow,
stay small and forever sweet.
Bright eyes, a giggle, prancing around,
a wonderful smell and very soft feet.

One day as I grow very old,
you may have to take care of me.
You may not look like a baby anymore
but a baby is all that I see.
