Sixteen Now - Poem by Jean Evans
Sixteen years ago to the day,
A child was born, a little girl babe.
She stole the hearts of everyone she met,
And in their hearts, she has been so closely kept.
So much maturity in a child who could still make you laugh,
Especially when there were times everything was so bad.
So smart, so beautiful, so self assure,
This is one little lady that refused to be ignored.
'IGNORED, ' you say, as if you could,
For a gal like this deseves attention and that's understood.
She makes us proud with all she does,
This 'Daddy's Girl' is truely loved.
Such an innocent face, how were we to know,
In so short a time, a wonderful young lady would grow.
So now at Sixteen when she thinks her life has begun to evolve,
We hope she'll stay the same simply because.....
No matter how old you get and where you'll go only time will tell,
We love you always, just the way you are, our Little Amanda Michelle.
