The little girl I carried
Is this the little girl I carried?
I don't remember growing older.... when did she?
When did she get to be a beauty?
Wasn't it yesterday when she was so small?
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze
What words of wisdom can I give her?
How can I help to ease her way?
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears.
