    Awww my heart is turning, in several different ways
    cause you'll be ~10~ in a matter of days

    The years are moving too fast for me
    and I'm seeing things, I don't want to see

    We use to talk about gadets and toys
    now you want to talk about Boys

    Remember when I taught you your a-b-c's
    now I have to teach you about the "Birds and Bees"

    Gee I hope I instilled in you all the right tools
    for you are my wonderful, most presious jewel

    Make me smile proud at the seed that I planted
    and never for one moment, take life for granted

    Knowledge is the key to many doors unknown
    you'll come to know that as you get grown

    but...

    Right now I'm gonna enjoy, the few years we have left
    as time will get shorter, the older you get

    yeah...

    You'll soon be slipping away from me
    but I guess that's the way it's suppose to be

    ps...
    I love you unconditionally and a whole lot more
    here's a:bowdown: to you...my beautiful, outstanding...
    Queen

    this song someday i'll sing
    when my little queen meet her king
    all the sweet moments we share
    and i showed how my love and heart
    cared for her best direction and her
    inner beauty but someday i'll have to let go
    but for now she still my angel only 2
    my my my soon time will fly .....................

    This was very endearing and fill with grace
    they grow up so quick and mindful and to think
    it's like yesterday she wasn't walking or talking
    now a little gem .......wow !

    This is so touching. I know how you feel though. My son is
    now 21 about to turn 22 and out the house but I must admit I find
    myself looking at photos of when he was just a little boy
    and missing him so much. From about age 17-20
    I kept trying to hold on. He finally told me
    "Mom Im not a little boy anymore" words
    that cut like a knife. I knew he would grow up one day
    I was just not ready for it.:) But Im good now. I know
    he has to find his way. The time really flies though so please
    enjoy it while you can. I remember the day my son
    did not want to hug or kiss me in front of his friends
    it wasn't cool anymore.:) But now he does.

    Beautiful write sista
