SOONER THAN YOU THINK

When my 8 year-old boy grabbed and held my hand last night it made me think of this. A fellow dad shared this with me and I’ve kept it close to remind myself. SOONER THAN YOU THINK-- One day Sooner than you think The echoes of your child's laughter Will have faded from your house One day Sooner than you think Their bed will be empty Their toys gone and their posters taken down One day Sooner than you think Their messy room will be clean And used for something else One day Sooner than you think The house they lit up with their voices Will be silent except for those soft sounds grown-ups make One day Sooner than you think The basketball hoop in the driveway Will stand unused all year One day Sooner than you think The swing set in the backyard Will be given away One day Sooner than you think Your child's spot at the dinner table Will be empty One day Sooner than you think Your son or daughter will visit you Just for awhile when they have time One day Sooner than you think Your house will be quiet Between their visits But today your child is home And they want to spend time with you Put off your work And take that time Because, one day . . .
