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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks for sharing
the John Denver
and magnolia moments
and these snapshots
of beautiful you.
