Just Like You!
I glance down and smile
My little girl looks at me
In my best dress and shoes
Red lipstick on her grinning face
Look mommy, I'm just like you!
I look up and smile
My daughter twirls around
Her prom dress swirling around her feet
So beautiful, so grown-up
Look momma, I'm just like you!
I look in the mirror and smile
My daughter smiles back at me
So radiant in her wedding dress
So glowing, so in love
Look mom, I'm just like you!
I look down and smile
Gently touch my daughter's sweaty brow
Gently touch the soft newborn's ...
Knowing when to talk and when to listen.
Knowing when to laugh and when to cry.
Knowing when to leave and when to stay.
Knowing when to stand firm and when to be flexible.
Knowing when to support and when to let them stand alone.
Knowing when to hold on and when to let go.
Love is Knowing.
