Somewhere in My Chronology, a Poem

by Nicole Seitz

If all of life is but a moment...

I am a little girl sitting
in a windowsill listening
to John Denver wondering
when her daddy's coming
home.

I am a young woman putting
a ring on a finger saying
I will now and always
under a magnolia
tree.

I am a new mother laying
on a hard table listening
to her daughter's cry saying
her name is
Olivia.

I am a soccer mom cheering
for her young son running
across a green field scoring
a goal just for
her.

I am a daughter, a sibling loving
my family, an author writing
characters teaching
me about
myself.

I am a child of God savoring
each second thanking
Him for the blessings hoping
for what tomorrow may
bring.

and magnolia moments
and these snapshots
