Kids today are growing up so fast,
Childhood years don't seem to last.
Take as many snaps as you can,
For soon that babe will be a man.
Remember that tiny bundle with curly hair,
Will soon be woman with so much flair.
Their cries in the night that kept you awake,
Days when you wondered how much you could take.
Watching the clock, where can they be?
Then in they charge, wanting their tea.
Suddenly then to your great surprise,
They are getting wed, right before your eyes.
So soon, you know , will come the day,
When, all grown up they will go on their way.
Now is the time with a tear in your eye,
You'll be glad of the snap as time went by.
Inspired by The Farish Family today
