✨Magical and mysterious.✨ My daughter Scottlynn amazes me. They grow-up so fast... ... One day when you look back . I cannot know your deepest soul nor your inner world . I see you, but for a moment, as you grow and change before me . Could I but reach that second, where you once were . To know your unique truth, but alas, you are already gone. . And so I chase after you and grasp at empty air . Where you once stood I catch only the shadow of your last step . {because you belong to the future} . I will never catch you darling, but will catch only a glimpse . — from time to time — . I am the past looking at you, as your eyes gaze at tomorrow. . Occasionally, when you look back, I see you, but you are a mystery to me . I am a mystery to you too, a parent, but a soul you will hardly know . Until one day, when I am gone and you look back, and reach for me — as I reach for you now. . In that moment, just know, that our love is forever. ... #daughters #time #cherish #cherisheverymoment #poem #poetry #poet #poetsofinstagram #poems #time

✨Magical and mysterious.✨ My daughter Scottlynn amazes me. They grow-up so fast…

One day when you look back
.
I cannot know your deepest soul
nor your inner world
.
I see you, but for a moment,
as you grow and change before me
.
Could I but reach that second,
where you once were
.
To know your unique truth,
but alas, you are already gone.
.
And so I chase after you
and grasp at empty air
.
Where you once stood
I catch only the shadow of your last step
.
{because you belong to the future}
.
I will never catch you darling,
but will catch only a glimpse
.
— from time to time —
.
I am the past looking at you,
as your eyes gaze at tomorrow.
.
Occasionally, when you look back,
I see you,
but you are a mystery to me
.
I am a mystery to you too, a parent,
but a soul you will hardly know
.
Until one day, when I am gone
and you look back,
and reach for me —
as I reach for you now.
.
In that moment, just know,
that our love is forever.
