As I Watch You Grow
Do you know how much you mean to me?
As you grow into what you will be.
You came from within, from just beneath my heart
It’s there you’ll always be though your own life will now start.
You’re growing so fast it sends me a whirl,
With misty eyes I ask, where’s my little girl?
I know sometimes to you I seem harsh and so unfair,
But one day you will see, I taught you well because I care.
The next few years will so quickly fly,
With laughter and joy, mixed with a few tears to cry
As you begin your growth to womanhood, this fact you must know,
You’ll always be my source of pride, no matter where you go.
You must stand up tall and proud, within you feel no fear.
For all you dreams and goals, sit before you very near.
With God’s love in your heart and the world by its tail,
You’ll always be my winner and victory will prevail.
For you this poem was written, with help from above,
To tell you in a rhythm of your mother’s heartfelt love!
