I look at you and can hardly belive tweleve years has gone by.

You were just a little girl sitting on my thigh.

Where has the time gone?

Almost as tall as I.

I look at you and cry.

What a beutiful young lady you have come to be.

I want to say, "Thank You",

for helping me.

Your smile so bright,

it is my light,when I am down.

You know just the words to say to make my day.

Now, it is your turn,

to swing and sway.

Hope you have a wounderful day.


It's your day to shine,

you beutiful girl of mine.

HAPPY 6th grade
