I look at you and I do not see the passage of time.
I see my little girl playing dress up,
running through the yard, playing on a swing.
I will try and respect the fact that
you are older now and
that the decisions you will make are your own,
but you must understand that to me,
you will always be my little girl.
I may not be able to carry you in my arms anymore,
but I will always carry you in my HEART.
