my favourite things / my little girl

she used to slide in beside me
hold my arm
her love wrapped in mine
her joy dancing along
free and flowing to all we would meet

my little girl
grew up

she slides her arm
into that of her prince now
the beauty of their love
the joy that now dances
through all their days

my little girl
grew up

took wing
and flew

her prince is all her world now
and the seed that grows within her
being knitted and fashioned
by God's loving hand
and heart
will set both their hearts to dancing
through all their days
to see this little miracle
take wing and fly

and always
be their
little girl

or perhaps...
little boy ! little girl
my favourite things
