the new you

the new you
shinier, more colorful, topped out!
smiling, radiant, ready
for the new year,
the new job,
the new place!
but alas, away from me,
your dear mother, so keep the
smile going for me, dear daughter,
it warms my heart,
it makes me smile
your topper of a green bow and
red and gold trailing tresses suits you,
my Karen, who will always be my little
girl, no matter how grown up.
