Mommie!!!! 

There it goes again
Seems like a zillion times a day
Why can't she entertain herself?
Why can't she just play?

For four years now this has gone on
Mommie this and mommie that
Before she came all I had to worry about
Was just the dog and cat

My schedule is turned upside down
The moments go too fast
Sometimes I think to myself
Just how long can I last?

My world is built around her
I have no life of my own it seems
Sometimes even when I finally sleep
She is right there in my dreams

Mommie!! 
I wonder what it is now
I have to go and see
I have to be there for her
For she depends on me

Finally it's bedtime
I'm tired as I can be
I listened to her prayers and tucked her in
Then she looked up at me

Then she said the magic words
"I love you Mommie" and gave me her angel smile
I look up to heaven and thank the Lord
For giving me this beautiful child

Mommie!!
Of course It's worth it all
For so much joy does she bring
In my heart I know even if I could
I wouln't change a thing.

I've never been a mommie but I am a daddy and a 
granddaddy and a great grandaddy.and I wouldn't 
want anything to change either except I wish they 
lived close by so I could hug them and tell them 
how much I love them every day.

God Bless all
