A pain in
my chest makes me want to cry.
I just want to scream why oh why?
I can’t stop you growing up or the stress that that brings.
But I can remember the days when you made my heart sing.
It was easier then, no worry or strife.
Which made for me a much simpler life.
But my love for you will never end.
Because you’re my little girl and my very best friend.
