Four little words were spoken.
Oh! how they changed my life.
You have a girl they whispered
as they placed you in my arms.
I counted all your fingers and
touched your little toes, I stared
into your precious face and kissed
your button nose.
No one could have prepared me
for the love I felt that day.
You were the gift so long awaited,
a perfect child God had created.
The years have passed and here
we are your sweet child on her way,
soon you'll feel that deep-felt love
you'll feel it everyday.
So listen for those little words
when you become a mother.
They'll place her in your waiting arms,
your darling little daughter....
