This Woman of Today
This Woman of Today by Bonnie Ramsey
It seems like only yesterday I held you in my arms,
Baffled by God's blessing of all your little charms.
That tiny little "miracle" would all too soon become
A bouncy, teen-aged heart throb, now, a woman of her own.
All the time we spent together, all the talks we had back then
Were not just Mother/ Daughter, it was sharing, friend to friend.
I pray that we will always keep the friendship that we share.
And may any road you travel hold great blessings for you there.
You'll never know how much I miss you when we're so far apart.
You're forever in my thoughts and even deeper in my heart.
As I look back in my memory on the child of yesterday,
I'm very proud to see you now, this woman of today!
