When I held you in my arms for the very first time,

I thought I could never love you more...

But then you grew.

In those precious baby times, Through your first smile, your first tooth, your first steps,

I thought I could never love you more...

But then you grew.

And in those sweet toddler times, The endless days of curiosity & adventures & discoveries,

I thought I could never love you more...

But then you grew.

And in those wonderful little girl times, Those days of hurt knees & hurt feelings, Of making friends & taking in the world around you,

I thought I could never love you more,

But then you grew.

And in those lovely young woman times, Those times of moods & mysteries, joys & heartaches,

I thought I could never love you more... But then you grew.

And still, always, day by day, you keep growing ...

More & more beautiful

nearer & dearer to my heart..
