My baby girl,
It is time to sleep;
Close your eyes,
Not one little peep.
Mommy’s gonna tell you
Of a love so deep
My love I give to you,
Love that’s yours to keep.
A mother’s love doesn’t end
When her daughter
Down the aisle she sends,
This your mum found to be true,
As she entered marriage
And motherhood without a clue.
Mom and grandma’s love relationship attempts,
Grew from one of strife, frustration and contempt,
To appreciation, mutual understanding and love,
Resentment now replaced with gratefulness to God above.
Through tears, fights, disagreements in marriage,
A mother offers words of wisdom, prayer support
That bears her daughter up in heavenly carriage
Marriage now binds them in deeper rapport
My little princess, this is just the beginning,
My heart, my time, my all, is yours for the taking,
May God bless this mother’s heart
Keep me by your side, never to depart.
