Child of my heart

Of me you're a part

As a baby - ever so cute

Dimples ‘n all - a real beaut

 

The toddler stage, then came

So small, so cheeky - what a shame

Quite cheeky was she - and how

Luckily she grew out of it now

 

A quiet little girl she became

Always in her corner, playing some game

Content with herself, was she

Never tiring of her own company

 

The teens sneaked up on her, somehow

and this is where she's at right now

although she'll always be my baby

she grew into quite a little lady

 

Sixteen and ever so sweet

Only the best of life, I pray you'll meet

At the feet of the God of Love

Remain - and blessing will flow from above

 

Child of my heart

Of me - a special part

As you go on from here - may your behaviour

Be in the will of our Lord & Saviour
