Late Day 10- but here it is.
velcro shoes hanging midair
curious eyes and innocent heart
one small barrette in her untidy hair
twenty years hold her and I apart
take heed little girl-Don’t be afraid!
whether church, salsa, or ballgown
give that dress a twirl!
never accept what makes you frown
I wish you all the best
in life, in love and work
travel far, both east and west
learn fast, grow slow
compare yourself to none
live any way you choose to go
