My Little Ballerina

I love you more than you can possibly know.

Somehow I missed the moment
I didn't get to see her twirl.
My little ballerina
my little dancing girl.

Loving her forever
even long before she's born.
I loved every step she took
and every dancing shoe she's worn.

Born against the odds they said
she's born of holy water.
My little dancing angel
my only daughters daughter.

With time and distance in between
no way for me to travel.
All the dreams of her and I
I slowly watched unravel.

Still miles can't stop a grandpas love
it speeds across the ocean.
The breeze that's sometimes in your hair
is a grandpas love in motion.

Not seeking fame or fortune
nor love and not romance.
It's on it's way to watch her sway
and see grand daughters dance.

If only in my mind I see
like I've watched from the start.
Every move my little angel makes
I see it with my heart.

Oh this is so sweet and lovely. The content and the rhythm and rhyme are just right. Poignant but not too heavy. a 7 for your poem for your grandaughter! :)
