poignant

when did you grow so tall
when did you reach beyond
when did your footprint
start to envelope mine

when did you begin to understand
the subtle nuances of life
i know i've looked carefully
all along the way
but some things grow in silence
just beyond the knowing
as the days pass in living
right before our eyes
soon you will be watching
as i've done with you
and you too will wonder
how it's come this far
from where it all began

This would be beautiful to give a child on, say, their high school graduation.

I really want my momma.
