Now you are nine.
You used to be eight,
And the numbers before that,
And before that, you were nothing,
Just a hope and a wonder,
And I made you and brought you to the world.
And sometimes life has been bumpy,
I wish I could make things easy,
But I will always take care of you,
You will always be my girl.
One day you will be big,
In fact each year you grow and grow,
And I will always be here,
Loving you more and more.
