Girl Child

Your three words today are:


Girl Child

By Ami (Gypsie) Offenbacher-Ferris

When you entered my life

I had never been so happy

So content

I had never seen

such a precious thing

As the tiny girl-child in my arms

When you started to grow

So did my love

My heart swelled with radiant joy

Then came the day

I had to pull you away

And wean you from my breast

I fear the day

When you really go away

Full grown, a woman on your own


  1. Most definitely. She’s 33 now with a 10 year old son of her own. ❤️


  2. Beautiful. That is such a scary feeling, I remember it well. It is such a shame that we can’t have hindsight first in life!
