Just Yesterday

Seems like only yesterday I was shocked by the news
Still not old enough to drink and I’d be buying baby shoes
Rocking her to sleep at nights after college and work all day
Going to court for custody, still ten long years away

Seems like only yesterday I was teaching her to walk
She was quick to take her first step and an early one to talk
She was happy and always on the go; fighting sleep each night
But when she slept upon my chest everything seemed alright

Seems like only yesterday I took her to ballet class
Watched her step on the yellow bus; going to school at last
Helped her with her homework, although she was real smart
Saw my baby growing up and her adult life to start

Seems like only yesterday I was walking her down the aisle
To the new man in her life, wearing a tuxedo and a smile
A toast I would offer them with a lump, huge in my throat
A tear drop escaping from my eye on the final wedding note

Now, it was only yesterday that she became a mom to twins
An exciting new chapter in her life only now just begins
I am so happy for my girl that her life has turned out this way
Even though it seems so much to me like she was born just yesterday
