Fierce doesn’t even begin to describe it
Love so deep I can’t find my way around it
My child, my child
The beauty you hold in
Your image so pure is my
Delight, my joy, my absolute pride.

Every step you take I worry a bit more
Yet respect and admiration are equally as powerful
As you grow and learn
A bit more each day
I can’t believe it! Look what you did!
How sweet, how amazing as those eyes
those beautiful, brown eyes
wonder at what is before you.

My daughter, my daughter,
I pray you know that
My mother’s love for you
Is more palpable than anything I have
