I’ve watched her grow taller

Her voice changing

Her sense of humor developing

Her individuality blooming

I’ve watched her struggle

Her temper calming

Her anxiety evolving

Her wisdom growing

I’ve watched her excel

Her confidence expanding

Her fears changing

Her ideas inspiring

I’ve watched her every day

Through every season

Through every trial

Through every accomplishment

Learning to breathe

Learning to adapt

Learning to love

Learning to be who she is

And teaching me

What it means to live
