A Little Girl Of Mine---A Poem of Love
I remember well, that winter day, when we first met
and right away my life was changed forever from that time.
You filled a void, inside of me, a place I never thought would see
someone like you.....a little girl of mine.
It seemed to me ,that from the start, you knew what things would melt my heart
and didn't hesitate to use them all.
From big sad eyes to lips that curl to "pick me up" and "I'm your girl"
I didn't have the chance to stop the fall.
My favorite memory, from the past, is when you went to school at last
I know I wondered if you'd really fit.
Soon you returned, and like a fool, I asked you what you thought of school
you looked at me and simply said "I quit"!
There was a time, not long ago, when I felt sad because I know
that soon, just like your cloths, you'd outgrow me.
The awesome things you have in store like, friends, and dreams and even more
and even things I have yet to see.
But even though I see the signs that you will soon leave me behind
I thank the Lord your healthy and your strong.
And soon the world will beckon you with all the things that you can do
with friends, instead of me, to tag along.
When your grown up and on your own and all your time spent far from home
when problems have you caught up in a whirl.
Just call on me and you will know the truth I told you long ago
no matter what you'll always be my girl.
