Little Girls

Little girls are little

For such a little while.

They outgrow your lap

In just a little while.

The gurgling changes to a giggle to a laugh

In such a little time.

They won’t ask to sleep on your tummy

After a little while.

They learn to play on their own

In such a little time.

They don’t want the dolls and teddies

After just a little while.

They outgrow the bows and ribbons

In just a little while.

Dad cannot throw them up in the air

Mama cannot share the rides

After just a little while.

Little girls can shower and get dressed on their own

They don’t ask you to feed them,

Or read them stories,

Or shoo away the monsters under the bed,

Or help them with Math,

Or take them to birthday parties,

After just a little while.

So love them and hold them

Cherish them and spoil them

For just a little while

For just a little while.
