So


When you were born, I held you close;
I kissed your lips, your eyes your nose.
Little fingers, tiny toes,
Don't you know I love you so?
When you were five I watched you go,
Off to school, out on your own.
Tears of mine began to flow;
Don't you know I love you so?
When you were ten I heard you cry,
Those girls at school were telling lies.
I hugged you close and whispered low,
"Don't you know I love you so?"
When you were fifteen you had to wait,
We told you that you couldn't date.
You cried to Dad, but he said "no".
Don't you know he loves you so?
Now you are grown, all dressed in white;
A man awaits, its Mr. Right.
We know it's time to let you go;
Don't you know we love you so?
