Hand prints on the wall

one day as I was picking
the toys up off the floor,
i noticed a small hand print
on the wall beside the door.

I knew that it was something
that i'd seen most every day,
but this time when I saw it there
i wanted it to stay.

Then tears welled up inside my eyes,
i knew it wouldn't last
for every mother knows
her children grow up way too fast.

Just then I put my chores aside
and held my children tight.
I sang to them sweet lullabies
and rocked into the night.

Sometimes we take for granted,
all those things that seem so small.
Like one of god's great treasures...
A small hand print on the wall.
