With your large, twinkling eyes
Beaming with joy
I welcomed you into the world
My heart filled with love and joy
As you held onto my hands
And gave the cutest laugh.
I knew then you’d always be my special girl
I showered you with gifts and toys
Shopped at the loveliest baby stores
But soon I realized
That you wanted nothing more than the time spent with me.
I invented silly sounds and faces
Just to hear your sweet laughter
My heart grew fuzzy and warm
Knowing I’ll always take care of you
Because of you the days became brighter.
As I waited eagerly to come home
To your smiling face you’d hold me by the hand
And show me the pictures you drew.
Sing your loudest ABCs
While I clapped and cheered for you
My heart filled with immense pride
How strange that I never felt alone
When I tucked you in bed
I gave you the warmest hugs
And kissed your soft, rosy cheeks
I knew in my heart
You were a precious miracle
Sent from above I began to cherish
The moments that felt so divine.
