Once I had a baby girl,
Hairless head-not even a curl!
Round and pudgy, part of me
By my side, she chose to be
Life of my life, I didn't mind
So I never ever left her behind
But it seems like overnight she fled
By becoming a "big girl" and running ahead!
My arms were outstretched, "Come back!" I cried
But you had grown wings and were happy to fly
So I did not chase, and I held my tongue
And I told myself, "It's alright, she's still young"
My baby girl is gone, I know
And time is passing---not so slow
And I can see how others say
"You'll blink and James will give her away,"
So I will do my very best
To cherish every moment, blessed
And take my pictures, and video tape
And carry my baby in memory's safe.
I love you, Wendy Lynn, AKA The Woo Loo, and I'm proud of you for being a big girl and starting preschool and I hope that you'll never feel that I have anything other than love and high hopes for your life and future in Christ! I'm so blessed to be your mom. Love, Me.
