My Advice For Growning Up - Poem by emma anderson

As i watch you grow up
seeing the smiles in your eyes
watching the love growing inside of you
but still being there when you cry

I wonder what person you'll be
when you reach you full height
will you break many hearts
and will you stand you ground between wrong and right?

Will you love and be loved,
will you give as well as take
are you going to learn from your mistakes
and be happy in the home you make?

I dont have alot of advice to give you
i cant tell you what choices to make
though i will always be there loving you,
you have your own path to take.

If you fall in love
hold on to it with everything you've got
happiness is something you make for yourself
and be true to yourself always, no matter what.

Learn to listen and to hear
learn to look and to see,
learn to fight for what you want
and learn when to let things be.

All of these things are learnt with age
and by making mistakes
by finding what makes you truly happy
and by fighting for it no matter what it takes.

I want you to live your life young
to love and care for those who love and care for you,
to be the person you want to be
and remember that your mummy (and daddy) will always love you.

    A nice little poem. Now if we could correct the spelling of the word ADVICE that would be great. And there are a few other errors.
    Thanks for the poem though. Good reading.
