today i saw strength & grace & courage
as a little life entered this world.

today i saw an amazing woman
where there was once my little girl.

today i stood in awe of you
as i tried to help you fight the pain.

today you became a mother,
and now your life’s forever changed.

today i stood and held your hand
and wiped away your tears

when not too long ago i rocked you to sleep
and a story calmed your fears.

(and) as i look upon you with amazement
at the woman you’ve grown into,
i know your son will be equally as awesome…

for he has a mother like you.
