You will miss the little girl you once had in your home
Hair clips and ribbons, dolls and their prams
Bath time with bubbles and fresh jim-jams
My little pony, a day at the zoo.
Are things I can think of but only a few.
Packed lunches and schoolbags, ballet and tap.
Giggles and kisses while sat on my lap.
Hula hoops and skipping ropes, scooters and bikes.
Jumping out of cupboards to give me a fright.
Always falling over and skinning her knee.
Much too busy playing to come in for tea.
I loved bedtime stories, the most precious of times.
Teaching her songs and nursery rhymes.
High school and make-up, painting nails red,
bringing home boyfriends are what you will dread
O'grades and Saturday jobs, nights on the town
Coming home late and making you frown.
Leaving school hoping, to find a career.
Leaving home for the fashionable gap year.
Australia and Thailand,working on a farm.
"There's a military coup, mum but don't be alarmed"
Singapore slings in Raffles hotel.
This girl definitely knows how to live well.
Jumping from a plane,diving deep below
How I made it through that year only god will know.
Hugs at the airport, she's home safe and sound.
She's now off to Uni but she'll still be around.
Then a boy's on the scene, he's stolen her heart.
Soon once again her and I must part.
When your daughter's not a child but a woman fully grown.
She will, one day make a life of her own,.
While she'll always be the baby you love and adore
She is now a happy woman, you cannot ask for more.
When your daughter's fully grown.
|Love you honey x|
