Sunrise, Sunset

The little girl I carried

and now...

Is this the little girl I carried?
I don't remember growing older.... when did she?
When did she get to be a beauty?
Wasn't it yesterday when she was so small?

Sunrise, Sunset
Swiftly flow the days

Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

What words of wisdom can I give her?
How can I help to ease her way?

Sunrise, Sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears.

(adapted from Sunrise, Sunset - Fiddler on the Roof Musical)
