Just the other day I saw you, so innocent, so small.
Not a care in the world, I know that what I see is a person after all.
As the years go by the person that I see… will have gone…just a memory.
I remember when you came into my life. It was a day, that I’d call you my own.
Not so far away, I know the time will come.
I’m gonna miss you, when your grown.
Playing out in the yard, all the favorite things, snuggle with me on the chair.
The feeling deep inside, though it will not last forever,
I must appreciate the moment while I can.
And though you’ll still be here, the person that I knew, is someone different, it is you.
