Little Baby

When I first saw you, you were so quiet, you hardly cry.
I wanted to hold you, and hold you, and hold you.
But our cuddles were so short because we lived miles.

You showed me love through your bright eyes and warm smile.
I held you and kissed you and told you, "You're cute by far."

Oh, little baby,I love you, and it's so hard to say goodbye.
But little one, every night I say a prayer that you'll stay as sweet as you are, 
and you'll grow to become a man and make me proud by far.
