I carried you for a little while,
Feeling you move sure made me smile;
Overwhelmed with love in my heart those nights,
As I laid on my bed and held my belly tight.
I was so excited to meet you the day you arrived,
When I first saw your face I couldn’t help but cried;
You have the beauty like a darling princess,
I’m so thankful to God for despite of my faults, I'm still blessed.
I wish for you a heart of gold,
And always assure you my hand is here to hold;
I wish for you a life of love,
Filled with caring, goodness and guidance from Above.
I wish for you a smart mind like no other,
So as you grow up, the world is yours to discover;
I wish for you a life of success,
To accomplish your best and never any less.
I wish for you to be healthy and strong,
And I pray each day that your life will be long;
I wish for you a life with no pain,
No teardrops to fall like droplets of rain.
I wish for you friendships that last,
And I hope each day for you is a blast;
I wish for you all of life's joys,
I will keep you from harm that’s for sure.
I will never expect perfection from you,
Just be who you are and always be true;
Mommy wishes all of this and more,
But God only knows what your future has in store.
I will guide you and teach you all that I can,
Take one day at a time is my lifelong plan;
My precious one, you’re the one I adore,
I love you like I've loved nothing before.
There’s one thing I need to say sorry,
For I can’t give you someone to call Daddy;
I did my best to save our relationship with your father,
But what else can I do if he can’t stay with me any longer.
But don’t worry baby, just be glad,
There’s God that stands as your dad;
For sure He will never leave you,
Nor forsake you as what a father should do.
My only dream is for my wishes for you to come true.
My precious one, my baby Sam, Mommy loves you so...
