daughter on her birthday, which is April 1st. It reminded me of times when I was watching
her grow, and of happier times when I could just call her up and tell her these things. I love
and miss her more than this mother could ever express, so this is to Ali:
My Precious Daughter
The joy of my life was just watching you grow.
You were my little princess, all tied with a bow.
I'd read you the same book over & over again,
and listen to "God Blesses" till you finally said "Amen".
I'd watch you through a window as you'd run and play,
and I'd say a little prayer that you'd remember one day...
That you were loved so very much, and how I loved watching you grow
Into WHO you are today...someone all the world should know.
