Reflections Of Taylor - Poem by CHARLES BAILEY

A young girl looks in her mirror
As she wonders what life will bring
She brushes her hair and checks her skin
And applies some cleansing cream

She sees beauty looking back at her
As she wonders what she will do
Will she act like the rest of the crowd
Or obey the Golden Rule?

While in our youth, some things we do
Could later bring us shame
A fleeting moment of pleasure
Could forever ruin our name

The greatest accomplishment you can make
And cherish your whole life through
Is to hear your parents speak the words
'Daughter, we are proud of you'

So do not grow up too fast
Enjoy youth while you may
Hold to your parents and love them
You will be without them, Someday.

Written for a special girl, Taylor. By Charles Bailey
