I'm Watching This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Almost daily
The little feet
Would patter their way
Through the snow

Almost daily
I could hear
The screeches of pain
And laughter commencing

Almost daily
I knew
That I would see her
Come up the steps
Bid me adieu

Almost daily
Those little feet
Would scamper away
And leave me
Alone

Almost daily
I would smile
Hug her tenderly
And watch
As she ran

Almost daily
I said good-bye
And cried as I watched
Her little feet
Grow smaller

Almost daily
I knew
I’d never see her again

This is so so heartfelt, but who is "she" ...that would make the understanding process much easier..Thank You! Loved the poem though.
