"You're the poet in my heart ..."

Welcome to the world, Precious One.


May the sunlight find your face
Even when the rain does fall
And get back on your feet again
Every time you slip and fall

Keep your heart wide open
And always taking in
And even when it's broken
Be strong enough to fix it up again

Oh, little baby girl
Sweet little baby girl
I wish I could hold your hand in this great big world
Oh, little baby girl

And I hope your hands are steady
And never need to make a fist
And I hope that when you're ready
You get one never ending kiss

And I hope that deep inside of you
There's a sweet eternal song
And I hope the words are pretty
And that you'll always sing along

And I hope your friends are many
And your laughter's always loud
To help you when you're lonely
And pick you up when you're down

I hope your eyes shine bright, love
And learn to see the light
Take the time to listen
Decide yourself what's wrong or right

Oh, little baby girl
Sweet little baby girl
Be strong in this great big world
Oh, little baby girl
("Baby Girl" by Will Hoge)
