When did you get so tall?

When did you get so tall, love?
Your shoulders are now broad
Your limbs so long and lithe, love
Your stance so self assured

What happened to your hands, love?
The dimples are all gone
Their span is close to mine, love
Your fingers lean and strong

Your little button nose, love
Your waterfall of hair
The colour of your eyes, love
Your skin so clear and fair

I heard you laugh last night love
The future came to me
That laugh will bring you love, love
So warm, alive and free

I once carried you within, love
Curled tightly like a ball
Where have those years all gone love?
When did you get so tall?
