My Daughter, My Caregiver

By Sylvia Finegan

You wore buttons and bows, timid and shy;
Such a sweet little girl, apple of my eye.
You loved pretty dresses, all frilly with lace;
Your eyes seemed to dance in your beautiful face.

We were best friends through your teen years;
I shared your excitement and wiped away tears.
Now you're a woman, with your own family;
But with all that you do, you still make time for me.

You call or come over nearly every day;
Just to make sure that I am okay.
You take great care of me, that is for sure;
I am very blessed to have you, for a daughter!
