On Her Fifth Birthday

I became a mother today,
You a little girl-
A soft cuddly ball of love
Held close in my arms.
Eyes a little off the focus,
Curly hair all askew,
I laughed and cried
The moment I saw
And fell in love with you.
 
Five years have passed since then;
Five years of togetherness,
Of growing up to the
Little lady that you’re now.
The tiny hands outstretched,-
As they reached out to me,
Hold on to a pencil now
Dipping in the knowledge sea.
 
I look into your face and think
What more could happiness be
And as always I give you
The most precious,
Most enduring thing alive
The gift of a mother’s love,
Dear daughter,
As you turn five.
