It Seems Like Only Yesterday

It seems like only yesterday I heard your first cry But today you spread your wings And discover how to fly. It seems like only yesterday I held your tiny hand But today you hold your diploma And make an independent stand. It seems like only yesterday I dressed you in ruffles and lace But today you have your own style And search for your own place. It seems like only yesterday I sang you a lullaby song But today you play your own music And dance all night long. It seems like only yesterday I thought time was on my side But today the clock is ticking And your dreams no longer hide. It seems like only yesterday You were my little girl But today your a grown woman And beautiful as a pearl.
