To my Precious little girl
Who is a child no more
There's so much I want to share with you
As your soul begins to soar.

I've loved you from the moment
That you began to grow
From a tiny seed inside of me
Into a person that I could know.

I've messed up many things in Life
I've called several hearts a spade
But bringing you into this world
Was the best decision I've ever made.

You are my shining moment
You are my glittering star
You are everything that's good in me
And I know that you'll go far

I long for you the peace I sought
And as I set you free
I'll smile through tears and watch you fly
Because you are the Best of Me!

That was wonderful... I would like to share it with a friend of mine who has just lost her little girl, to a drunk driver. She was playing in her front yard at the time. With your permission... Thanks for sharing this with me! :) Debi
