CIRCLE OF LIFE

As a baby, love comes in soft and simple ways A warm bottle, a hug, fresh sheet on which she lays. The toddler, she matures, begins to fill her days Walking so she can grab the toys with which she plays. By five our sweetheart is eager to face school ways The gerbil in her class never ceased to amaze. At puberty, she's in that "I-know-it-all" phase Any attempt at advice brings a zombie gaze. When graduate is on her own at last all pays She becomes a friend you happened to help to raise. One day she'll say the thing that sets your heart ablaze: "You're gonna be a grandma," -- one who's earned her praise!
