I remember 25 years ago,
you were so tiny then.
I can't help but wish,
that you were small again.
I've cried when you've faced heartaches,
and have learned, that as you grew,
you've developed confidence,
and strength of your own.
I'm filled with mixed emotions,
as I hold back all the tears
thinking that the time will come,
when I shall let go of your hands.
When I first held you in my arms,
if only I'd have known,
the years would feel like moments,
after you had grown.
Now..you aren't a child anymore,
though in my eyes,
I guess you'll always be,
that baby girl who had changed my life,
and means the world to me.
