I loved you before I met you,
you stole away my heart.
The moment I held you in my arms,
I never wanted us to part.
I remember your first smile,
I remember your tiny face,
all of the memories I have of you,
no one can erase.
I remember your first tiny tears
and how they broke my heart,
little did I know this was just the start.
I watched you grow over the years,
not wanting you to feel pain.
I soothed you and I comforted you
time and time again.
As the years passed ,
you grew into a person all your own,
You began your own life and
again I was alone.
But the memories that I cherish
are locked safe inside my heart and
though the years have passed they will never be forgotten.
