Graduation

It’s here~

The day I imagined in the very distant future,

eighteen long years ago,

as I held this sweet baby to my breast,

and marveled at her rose bud lips,

and  jet black hair.

Her beauty already apparent,

intelligence shown through deep, brown eyes

that stared up at me with an ancient knowing,

that passes between mothers and daughters,

the look that says~

welcome to the mighty tribe of women:

strong, capable and sure.

Now as I watch her cross the stage,

it comes to pass,

she is ready to stride confidently

filled with conviction and strength,

and I will sit back and watch my daughter
