I loved you way before I saw you,
The tiny speck of life you were,
Tucked away inside your mother
Yet still a part of me for sure
That happy day my arms received you
No greater joy could ere be mine.
My heart embraced you, priceless treasure
And overflowed with love divine
I thought you looked just like your father,
Yet some of Mom was there to see.
And maybe it was wishful thinking,
But I'm sure I saw a trait from me
A wonder you are my precious grandchild.
God made you with a drop of me,
And yet you're unique, so truly special,
And I dream of what you'll some day be.
