The First Time I Saw Her

The first time I saw her,
She was blue;
Cord wrapped round her neck.

She was mine.
She was ours.
We loved her.

Now in her teens,
She breaks our hearts.
But we love her just the same.

  1. Oh dear, my son is almost a teenager πŸ˜‰ Our love for our children never changes, but it doesn’t mean it’s easy to live with them all the time, does it?


  2. My daughter will leave home for university next fall so I can relate to this. I’m already dreading all of the empty space her absence will create, but thankful she will be only a couple hours away.

    This was really lovely!
