i look upon your face

your gentleness does not escape

warmth and kindness in your grin

lovely, lovely welcoming in


your eyes follow my every move

my love for you I will prove

soaking in the tone of my voice

love from me is the only choice


the touch of your tiny finger to my hand

sends a message deep for all I stand

Lily, you are gift beyond measure

In my heart you will always be my treasure
