She started school this morning,
And she seemed so very small.
As I walked there beside her
In the MBCS Kindergarten hall.
And as she took her place beside
the others in the class,
I realized how all too soon
Those first few years can pass.
Remembering, I saw her as
She first learned how to walk.
The words that we alone made out
When she began to talk.
This little girl so much absorbed
In learning how to write.
It seems as though she must have grown
To girlhood overnight.
My eyes blurred so quickly
I brushed the tears away
Lest by some word or sign of mine
I ruin her first Big Day.
Oh how I longed to stay with her
And keep her by the hand
To lead her through the places
That she couldn’t understand.
And something close to fear
Was mingled with my pride.
I knew she would no longer be
A baby by my side.
But she must have her chance to live,
To work her problems out,
The privilege to grow and learn
And discover what God is all about.
And so I must share my little girl
With friends and work and play;
She’s not a baby anymore –
She’s in Kindergarten today.
