When I Bumpled Into Your

Written by: Patricia Lewis

The other night you were sleeping and I bumped into your feet and it made me recall..
The first time I saw your tiny feet when you were born
The first time you took your first steps
The first time I bought you shoes
The first time you ran away from me to go into the kindergarten class
The first time you walked across the stage for your 8th grade graduation
The first time  I saw you play a full set of drums
The first time you played your first volleyball game 
The first time you got into the car to drive
All in a flash of a minute realizing that your next big step you will be taking is walking across the stage for your High School graduation
I realize that your tiny toes that I kissed 17years ago may still be small in stature but about to venture out in this big world...
