One day you will walk into a coffee shop,

And you will see her for the very first time.

Hold that moment…

That’s when you believed in fate,

And love at first sight.

 

One day you will be standing at the altar,

And you will say your vows together.

Hold that moment…

That’s when you knew,

That she would be yours forever.

 

One day you will be in the delivery room,

And you will be whispering through tears, “It’s a girl.”

Hold that moment…

That’s when you held in your arms,

The most precious gift in the world.

 

One day you will be at her graduation,

And you will feel as proud as can be.

Hold that moment…

That’s when you knew your sacrifice was worth it,

To see her receive her doctoral degree.

 

One day you will be walking her down the aisle,

And you will remember her ribbons and curls.

Hold that moment…

That’s when she told you,

“I will always be your little girl.”

 

One day you will be in the waiting room,

And you will have to let the joy bubble out.

Hold that moment…

That’s when you realized what

The joy of being a grandparent was all about.

 

Some days special events will occur,

And you feel that you have a wonderful life.

Hold that moment.

Those are your assurances,

That everything is going just right.

 

Some days may appear ordinary,

And you begin to take things for granted.

 

Hold that moment!

 

Because life is precious,

And you never know what may happen.
