She’s Been Replaced

Little girl where have you gone?
Your sneakers turned to heels
Face paint traded in for makeup
Mommy got changed to ma
But my bedtime kiss and cuddle
Still a constant with your love
Child grown to woman now
But you’ll always be my baby
A vital piece of my beating heart
Happy eighteenth birthday
To a most amazing soul
Who blessed me when she chose me
To be her ever loving mother
And though you’re an adult from this day
Scary thought it may be
You’re not suddenly all alone on your journey
We’ll still be right here for you
Supporting, guiding, listening and loving
As best we can
