Growing Up

Watching new life grow slowly from seed to sapling
Hoping the roots will remain strong
Keeping the sun shining above
Knowing love will provide food to move this along

Coming together to witness
The glory and wonder of innocence expand
Great things come as products of faith to hold onto
Staying strong with some hope in hand

Where once there was a simple wish displaying truth
Now lays a being to decide
Making their choices out of love
days and nights mesh together as the times abide.
