Poem: Watching Him Grow

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Watching him grow is about remembering the early years when one's child grows. You remember his first words, watching him try new things, climbing on anything he could. You are happy to still be watching as he reaches for his own pathway in life. Hoping his moments are filled with happiness.

"Then They Do" by Trace Adkins


I remember the early years
watching you learn to talk,
hearing your first words,
eagerly trying new things,
climbing on anything you could.

Today you are still climbing
reaching for new goals,
finding the pathway
for your own life.

I am happy to be sharing
this part of your journey,
I hope your days bring you as much joy
as you give me.

I wish I could freeze time or go back in time and watch my kids grow up all over again because it is just going by too fast.

— Robert Rodriguez


"Never Grow Up" by Taylor Swift
