Always to Be, My Little Girl

You came into my life twenty four years ago Capturing my heart, Oh how I love you so Your big brown eyes looking into mine A precious gift from God, Heaven divine Family and friends gathered in love To welcome an angel from above Your dad and I ecstatic to meet our little girl A blessing forever to change our world It is amazing how so much pain endured Births a love so deep, so precious and pure A love beyond meaning, none to compare A love to protect at all cost, if harm should ever dare After hours of anticipation, I heard a cry The sweetest sound I know, my blessing had arrived As they laid you in my arms, my heart skipped a beat A moment in time, a moment to cherish, so bittersweet The first night alone, just you and me I held you for hours, rocking you so gently That night is visited many times in my mind For the first time I can remember, my life was defined My call to be a mother created by God's precious hands A moment in time to be still, a moment to stand How you have influenced my life, in so may ways Giving my life meaning, I was changed on that day The years have flown by, time refused to stand still Grown into adulthood, your dreams to fulfill. Now you stand before, no longer my little girl But an extraordinary woman, a heart so pure I will always follow you throughout your life On my knees in prayer, guiding you from strife Standing on the sidelines, I promise to always be Your number one fan, until eternity calls for me When I am gone I pray you will remember Just as the snow falls in late December A blanket of white to cover the ground Innocent and pure, you was my love profound May God forever bless and guide my little girl At the wheel of life may He always be at the stern May your life be filled with great joy and much love Someday to experience, as I, His blessing from above When that day comes, life will bring new meaning The love between mother and child, exceeds all thinking Mountains you will move, forever to shield and protect A love God entrusted in you, a love so perfect Being my first, I made many mistakes My love for you, I will never forsake Not a day goes by, time can erase When I held you in my arms, my heart you embraced I thank God, unto me you was born So much you have taught me, so much I have learned I love you to the moon and back, you will always be That perfect love, forever to change me Written by: Donetta Harless Friday, July 29, 2016
