    BabyGirl,

    I know you're too young to read this right now,
    But I have to put down what I feel right now

    I feel that you touched everyone In that hospital room
    Even though you made two kidsinto parents way too soon

    And myself, I was skeptical about how healthy you would be
    Because you're mother used to wear a size 3

    But I look into your eyes, I see you're doing just fine
    Even thought it took you 14 hours, you are right on time

    Just so you know, you're such a beautiful little baby
    And with God's grace, Ill see you turn into a young lady

    I wasn't with you during you're moment of arrival
    But I'm with you now, I'll hep you through any survival

    Looking at you brings tears of joy to my eyes
    As I watch you're tiny hands reach up to the sky

    The innocence of your life, the beauty of your face
    From the moment I saw you, in my heart you found a place

    I looked at you, tears just started to roll down steady
    You're such a gem I don't think the world is ready

    God sends only the best of angels to this Earth..
    I think he sent the very best on the day of your birth.

    :heart: you,
    Your Godmother:kiss:

    Tight rhyme, nicely married with the "awww" factor. :) She's lucky to have you as a godmother, SwtT.
