To My Little Girl
By Julie McElhinney
Little hands, miniature toes
A cute round belly, and a tiny nose,
Pretty blue eyes, long curly hair
Comforting hugs to show that she cares.
Butterfly kisses and Eskimo too
She makes you happy when you are blue,
Dancing up and down all around
She giggles like a well-trained clown.
Thank you God for this precious gift
She gives my heart a much needed lift,
I will treasure her all my life and then
I’ll love her in the next life again.
