her steps

she is beautiful, her smile
the way she moves
like she is making music with her arms
joy is in her steps

I used to be her
not bitter
not jaded

living moment by moment

I wish I could protect her
If I could take her future pain I would
If I could keep her from falling I would
my little girl, so full of love

Life surrounds her
time moves, she moves
I have no say

no control
heart ache awaits

the beginning of a lifetime of choices
only God knows her path

my prayer is for her to always walk
with God
to dream her dreams
follow her heart
