Precious Child of Mine

Little one, I love you so.

I watch as you grow.

From the day our eyes first met,

I have never had a regret.

Booboo kisses on the knees,

Climbing, hanging out of trees,

Learning, playing, having fun,

Crawling, walking, and then the run–

The days feel long,

But such is life’s song

That short are the years,

Filled with laughter and tears.

Before my very eyes,

You grow and I realize

So little you are not.

But, child, I never forgot

How precious to me you are,

You, my lovely shining star.
