I am here for you today
as I have always been
even when
you are far away
going about your life
in its good times or with strife.

Nor can words truly convey
how I feel for you today
as it has been from your birth,
which has blessed me
beyond measured worth
with prayers to Thee
above for allowing it to be!

So, today
I will just say
to you, my little one grown,
that I am so very proud
of you for being your own...
with unwavering love avowed.

Authors Note...
My poem, Today, was written for all regardless of age as each of us is a child first with many of us being parents and even grandparents . . . And those yet full grown will hopefully relate to it one day too!
