I Remember the Day

I remember the day you were born,
Your mother struggled, but never faltered,
Her drive and conviction never altered.

I remember the day you were born,
With your fiery red hair, and your quiet cries,
Your squishy cheeks, and your pretty eyes.

I remember the day you were born,
Grandma cried, Grandpa kissed your mom
They couldn’t wait for this day to come.

I remember the day you were born,
Your brother smiled and touched your arm,
He would never let you come to harm.

I remember the day you were born,
I couldn’t help but shed a tear,
My little girl is finally here.
