Little Girl



Merry-go-round and half-scraped knees
Brown stuffed bears and ABC's
Monkey bars, swings and seesaws too
Scary big dogs and trips to the zoo

Little girl, don't grow up so soon
You'll have plenty of time to be old one day
Savor your childhood, live your dreams
Cuz the days of your youth soon slip away...

Make-up bag filled and perfect hair
Gorgeous earrings but nothing to wear
Jangling keys, c'mon let's go
We've waited so long, let's start the show

Little girl, don't grow up so soon
You'll have plenty of time to be old one day
Savor your childhood, live your dreams
Cuz the days of your youth soon slip away...

Shining face and silver crown
Grandma's tears and long white gown
Today's the end of your childhood
I hope it was long, and I hope it was good

Little girl, don't grow up so soon
You'll have plenty of time to be old one day
Savor your childhood, live your dreams
Cuz the days of your youth soon slip away...

i think that just made me appreciate my daughter more than i realized, if that's even possible.
