To My Daughter

When you were just a baby,
And I held you in my arms.

I loved you more than life itself,
And all your baby charms.

When you were just a little girl,
And you began to grow.

Each day I watched and loved you more,
Than you could ever know.

When you went through your teenage years,
And life became a test.

I knew this little girl I loved,
Would someday leave the nest.

Now that you are a woman,
And you have your family.

You understand how very strong,
A parentís love can be.
