They brought you home,
a little bundle.
Restlessly I fumbled
wanting to hold you,
to softly touch my hope, my dreams
but you were so tiny and tender
What if I hurt you?
I let you grow
watching you intently.
As you clung onto dear life –
while I watched behind the lines.
How I envied your mother then!
Moments passed so slowly then
Making me think that you would
never recognize me,
When one fine day, tired and exhausted
I lay down loosening my tie beside you.
Something in what I did (I still wonder what)
suddenly made you treat me
with that dimpled smile of yours
that I fell headlong for.
No other person had ever charmed me so.
My little girl
As I watched you twirl
Years passed us swiftly by.
It was time for you to go away.
I suppose we had to call it a day.
You smile for someone else today.
But hey! I know!
There was a time
You flashed that first innocent smile
Only for me.
Then, there was just the two of us.
You and Me!
