Baby Steps
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2007


You were so small my little treasure
Watching you grow has been a pleasure.
I remember those first baby steps
Some made you laugh, some made you sweat.

Each day will bring challenges to face
from baby steps to new places.
And as you grow and experience life
I hope you learn to counter all life's strife.

Always remember, my love for you
When you're happy and when you're blue.
It is mistakes you'll make
But, sometimes, though, life's not a cake.

But like baby steps you first took
You will learn, listen and look.
When you consider life as a gift,
It can give you a big lift.

Two steps forward, one step back
Determination, and persistence never lack
Giant steps, baby steps we all take
But in the end, your attitude it will make.

When certain steps don't work out
Don't sit and pout
Remember how far you have come
From the first baby step to what now you've become

I am proud of you my wonderful treasure
You are special, unique and a wonderful pleasure!
