My Little Girl

Where has time taken my little girl?
If wishes really came true.
I'd capture time, place it in a capsule.
Treasure it as a golden nugget.

Unwind the hands of time.
I'd read more books, take more walks, cuddle in the middle longer.
Not scold for fingerprints on the wall, nor mud prints on the floor.

The sands of time flow on down.
When did you get to be so tall?

Turn back the pages of time.
I've loved you and cherished you and held you.
Taught you the Love of the Lord your God.
Trained you in the way you should go.

Now the time has come.
Like a bird in the nest, ready to test out your wings.
I must let you fly away.

In the ages of time to come, remember this:
Those country roads will always lead home.
You will always be my little girl.

I will always love you,
