A healthy pink bundle

That seems so delicate

She possesses the power

To melt my heart

Her ten tiny toes

And the little fingers

She will reach for me with

All make her perfect

Ultimately proud of who

She grows up to be

Forever my baby

My namesake in life

A woman in bloom

The future is hers

You used to laugh

When Tigger would bounce

And tumble into Pooh


You used to dance

When Disney classics played

Over and over again


You used to come to me

When you hurt yourself

And needed a boo-boo kissed


You used to be my little girl

When did that change

And you became the woman before me
