Sometimes I Can’t Believe It

I can’t remember what year I wrote this, but it must have been when David was about 10 or 11 and Julie was, of course, 22 months younger. I wrote it just about them, and also for my sister Cathy and her son and daughter and any other parents of a son and daughter – some in my Mothers of Twins Club too.

Sometimes I Can’t Believe It

By Sharon L. Bratcher

Sometimes I can’t believe it when I hug this strong young man

Whose head comes just below my chin– I just can’t comprehend

Some years ago I kissed the top of his soft, warm, fuzzy head

But instead of standing on his feet, he was in my arms instead

Sometimes I can’t believe it as I brush her long, long hair

And see her smile- just inches from mine – I’m surprised and yet aware

Some years ago I snapped a bow in her fine strands, inches long

I held her up and prayed that today she’d be healthy, lovely, strong

Sometimes I can’t believe it – how they’ve grown and changed so fast

I’ve a million mental pictures – instant link-up with the past

I’m so thankful to the Lord for these two big kids with me

Sometimes I can’t believe it, they’ve grown up so rapidly.
