When God created you, the heavens rang A symphony of praise and jubilee Celestial ones with rapture danced and sang And rainbow hues burst forth with joyous glee We gathered round your crib, by wonder filled Your tiny form I cradled to my chest The joy that thrilled our hearts could not be stilled As parents well we knew how we’d been blessed You are the beauty of a starlit night You are the gentle warmth of setting sun You are the wonder of Aurora’s light And none with you compares, not even one My darling child, a woman now you are You know the course you want your life to take You have the will and strength to travel far Protect your heart, my child, for mother’s sake Be stronger than I am, be more secure Speak out and use your voice to leave your mark In fight for equal rights, you must endure Let inner light burn bright; don’t lose that spark A bed of roses life will never be Yet be a fragrant rose of rarest hue Your beauty let the worthy hearted see Don’t be afraid to bloom in colors true My precious girl, you are a mother’s dream And when my heart is heavy, filled with care To tired thoughts, you bring a golden gleam I see your smile and life turns rosy, fair You are my greatest joy, my lovely pearl Your home is in my heart, and there you’ll stay No matter where you go, you're still my girl Be sure my love will help you find your way Eileen Manassian February 14, 2017

Wow. Nice poem for mother's day, albeit the mother is addressing the child rather than the other way round.
