    yesterday...
    you were just a gleam in my eye,
    a skip in my step,
    the breath of my sigh,
    a tear as I wept

    today...
    you are my day and my night,
    my reason to strive,
    the source of my light,
    purpose I'm alive

    yesterday...
    you were a nauseous attack,
    a kick in my side,
    a pain in my back,
    and stretch marks to hide

    today...
    you are my water and air,
    my joy and my smile,
    devotion and prayer,
    my jewel in the nile

    yesterday...
    you were a hope and a dream,
    an event which to plan,
    mystery unseen,
    a new minivan

    today...
    you are my determination,
    my ambition and strength,
    my blessed creation,
    the force to pass all lengths,

    you're a beauty
    a queen
    the essence of my being
    you're my life
    you're my love
    sent from heaven above
    you're my laugh
    you're my peace
    you're a joy that won't cease

    my DAUGHTER - you're my heart
    always were from the start
    my whole reason for living
    the gift that keeps on giving
    and I love you so much
    words are never enough

    so I give you myself -
    soul, and everything else
    I'll provide anything you will ever need,
    in return - joys of MOTHERHOOD I will receive...

    I LOVE YOU GRACE!!!!!
    thank you creation for this blessing

    -Mama
