Just for you, these words I write
while I watch you sleep through the night.
My little girl, oh how I worry
your growing up in a hurry.
As you continue to grow here is a list of things you must know
I want you to continue to do what is right
always keep God in sight.
I want you to always be yourself and never insecure
keep your mind pure.
I want you never to cry, hurt, or have pain
but when you do, run to me and I will protect you from the rain.
I want you to learn and be smart
always go with your heart.
I want you to laugh and play
please God, keep her from harms way.
You must know mommy is always here
to protect you from all that you fear.
You are my first born
I was seventeen and with child
you remember times when I was wild.
Together, we've been through a lot
regret having you, never I do not.
Please know I would do anything for you
anything you needed me to.
Please know as you get older
a guardian angel sits on your shoulder.
My precious baby girl
you are such a beautiful sight
with all my wrong you are my right.
You make me so proud
when I see you smile that makes it all worth while.
Always be strong and always stay real
let no one change how you feel.
Never be afraid to speak your mind
sometimes the world can be unkind.
I know your going to be just fine
and I know you will do great things.
I'll sit back and watch you spread your wings.
Know that I love you more than words can explain
sometimes it makes me a little insane.
When you hurt I hurt
When you cry I cry
My angel for you , I would die
