Alexis Noelle Brough
I look back in time,
Young and very innocent
Seeing the world through your eyes
Memories I hold safe in my heart
To sometimes unwrap with a smile
and the comfort of a sigh
Now my little girl is grown,
A woman you have become
With the wisdom and strength God has given
Is tranquility I feel knowing that anything
you will overcome
This strength and warmth
of heart I see in you
I know will lay no boundaries
For the world is yours to have sweetheart.....
To hold in your hands,
each moment to appreciate and seize
I am there for eternity,
If only in thought
A place you can come to as you feel you need.
I am standing in the shadows allowing you
to grow and learn
Holding onto the knowledge that
with your heart,
you will succeed.
It is your strength and kind heart about you that shines.....
As a single ray of sunlight beaming through a cloud
insisting we look higher and higher
To lift us up when we are down.
It is this my daughter in you
that I do admire."
