My Baby Girl


From the day you were born I knew
That my reason for living was you
My baby girl, my source of pride
For you, and from you, my love I'll never hide

Watching you grow, please God not too fast
I want these days of my baby girl to last
After your bath, kissing your tiny toes
You giggle and kick out, hitting me in the nose

My baby girl, when you smile at me
I'm happier than I ever thought I could be
Your baby talk I love to hear
Soon you'll say daddy, loud and clear

With you in your stroller to the park we go
The other children's parents all stop and say hello
I may be prejudiced, but of all the babies here
You're the most beautiful and angelic, my dear

My baby girl you're forever in my heart
All the time we're together and when we're apart
Holding you in my arms to rock you to sleep
Every day brings joyful memories to keep

My sweet little angel, my darling baby girl
More precious to me than a diamond or a pearl
You've enriched my life like no one before
My daughter, my angel who I always will adore

My baby girl, if you ever need me I will be there
My love and compassion you always will share
To always love you and forever treat you right
This I promise as io kiss you gfoodnight
