In Your Slumber




         In Your Slumber

            As you lay in your slumber
            I watch you.
            I see you in your restful state
            And hope your dreams are sweet.
            I smile at you and sigh a sigh
            One only I will hear.
            I know you soon will grow
            To be a beauty and you'll leave.
            But for now you are with me
            And so it's meant to be.
            The times we have I'll treasure
            This love that we do share,
            Will stay embedded in my mind
            You’ll always know I care.
            Your first day of school will be
            Our very first goodbye.
            The day you enter college I know
            I'll surely cry.
              And on the day that that you
            You will wed.
            I'll be choking back the tears,
            As I think of all the fun we had
            Throughout the many years.
            You are my precious daughter
            I'll always love you so
            And through the years of Laughter
            I hope you'll always know.
            As you lay there in your slumber
            I watch you....
           With tears in my eyes.
