Crawl On

smiling baby lying on white mat

Today I watched you crawl for the first time

You did so with the speed of life

Slowly inching along

Yet still you crossed the room in a flash

The dishes pile up in the sink

The floor needs swept

But I can’t take my eyes off of you

If I did, you’d surely be playing with something you shouldn’t

But I’d also miss these moments

The firsts, the lasts,

The first time you crawled

The last time you couldn’t reach that toy

Like time, you crawl on

Slow, yet way too fast
