Young, carefree
Her little eyes so sweet
Innocence and ignorance
She is only three

Creative, curious
All about expression
Experimenting with the world
She is only seven

Fearless, careless
Big world to experience
So ready to explore
She is only ten

Expressive, dramatic
Ready to achieve
The world is at her fingertips
She is only fifteen

Ambitious, driven
Trying to succeed
Little no more
She is only eighteen

Dedicated, Independent
On her own for the first time
Life is a breeze
She is twenty-five

Humble, trusting
Wise beyond her years
Aging with grace
She is merely fifty

Peaceful, forgetful
The world so different now
Her time is at close
She is now ninety-five

I love it!! My only comment would be that the rhyme scheme is lost in the last two stanzas, not sure if that was on purpose or not. But overall it was an awesome idea that was well executed :)
