From baby to child,
From child to teen;
Oh how they grow;
They never stop wondering
Through their eyes so keen.
What is in the eyes of youth?
It’s beauty, it’s hope, it’s love.
How we shape them, depends on us;
Or, cause them to withdraw and remove,
We may not know.
Shelby the youthful one – long, flowing hair,
With love, energy and blessing from above;
She draws, creates, learning to become,
Young woman of beauty, aspirations, love.
We dream for them, encourage them, guide them,
Not just let them wonder of life,
They form and glow, like a shining gem.
We do what we can, to slow the strife.
We behold little things they do,
Praising, lifting spirits high,
You can do it, we know you can,
What a lovely drawing, through mind’s eye.
Blessings along the Way!
