My Baby Girl

My Baby Girl


My beautiful baby girl
playing outside on the lawn

without a care in the world...
but soon you will be gone.

When you were born I couldn't believe
how much you looked like me,

an image so clear none could deny
and all could plainly see.

My little one won't stay at home
forever in the yard,

a time will come when I'll let go
and I know it will be hard.

I'm sure the happiness I've known
will stay here in my heart

long after you are fully grown,
and we are far apart.

But no matter where you go
in this wide and wondrous world,

I'll always treasure you, my dear,
as my special baby girl.

A meeting was held quite far from earth.

"It's time again for another birth," Said the Angels to the Lord above, "This special child will need much love...

Her progress may seem very slow,
Accomplishments she may not show,
And she'll require some extra care,
From the folks she meets way down there.

She may not run or laugh or play,
Her thoughts may seem quite far away,
In many ways she won't adapt,
And she'll be known as handicapped.

So let's be careful where she's sent,
We want her life to be content.
Please, Lord, find the parents who
Will do a special job for You.

They will not realize right away,
The leading role they're asked to play,
But with this child sent from above,
Comes stronger faith and richer love.

And soon they'll know the privilege given,
In caring for this gift from Heaven,
Their precious charge, so meek and mild,
Is Heaven's very Special Child.'
