Oh! My Little Girl

Oh! My little girl,

Come close to me.

Let me hold you close,

One last time before you grow up and go.

Oh! My little girl,

Let me see you close

And love you a little more.

Before you lead the sky.

Oh! My dear one

Why did you grow up so fast ?

I wish this moment could last.

Taking you in my lap,

And you peacefully taking a nap.

Rolling on my chest.

Seeing you I never want to rest.

Lest you venture out and go away.

To the miles so long and unseen.

I wish I could hold you like before,

And never let you away from my sight.

Thinking about it I get a fright.

I wish you could be with me day and night.

Love me as you do now.

But you have your dreams of soaring high.

How can I stop you for myself ?

When I know you are made for a life of forever glory.

Go on my little one to your journey.

Be a star and always a winner.

Let your life never have any winter.
