My Baby Girl
I wanted the best for you, my love...my baby girl,
Knowing you would become another's precious pearl.
I promised to be brave and abundant in my wishes,
Trusting you would never lack for mother's sweet kisses.
With only a few moments to tell you life's great story,
Knowing you would hear my whispered words and never worry.
I promised to be like a blue bird perched upon your shoulder,
Trusting my words come back to you as you grew and got older.
My life became what i wished it to be...but never quite complete,
Knowing i wouldn't hear your giggle or the patter of your little feet.
I promised i would let you grow...just like in a secret garden,
Trusting the truth to reach your heart and yet never cause a burden.
Then one day...from out of the blue...came a message like no other,
Knowing well that it might be you...asking if i was your mother?
I promised then i would never let you go...just like a precious pearl,
Trusting that you found your way back to me, my love, my baby girl!
