Ruffles, ribbons, buttons and bows
Patent leather shoes, leggings of rose.
Soon chasing butterflies out in the field.
Light as the wind; Drifting at will.
Heart filled with laughter, as off she’ll race.
The sunshine radiance illuminates her face.
What precious gift God has given to me.
A gift I will treasure for all eternity.
Soon she’ll leave to conquer the world.
All will be blessed to have known this sweet girl.
Her hopes and dreams she’ll share with a few.
She will offer her love with a heart anew.
Each child is a blessing and only on loan,
From the Father in heaven, to Him they belong.
Treasure each moment as if it’s pure gold.
Finely refined, a sweet gentle rose.
