My Daughter Grows Up.. (poem)

Life is fleeting, years rush past...
and little girls grow up so fast!
Let me take time out to be
glad that mine's still here with me.
And though I'm busy through the day,
let me take time out to play....
Let me take time out to smile,
to linger with her for a while...
To invite her under the table for tea
and dress up silly as can be,
Let me take time out to sing,
and dance and skip
and twirl and swing...
To splash in puddles when it rains,
and make her fancy daisy chains.
Let me take time out to hear
about the things she holds dear.
Let me tuck her in at night,
hear her prayers, turn off the light.
And for one more moment let me pray
and thank God we shared this day.

(i dont know who wrote it, but it makes me cry everytime, I am so thankful to have my daughter and to be able to spend everyday with her and see her smile and make her laugh and just having her with me..)
