Tonight I laid you down to sleep like so many nights before;
But it felt a little different…because tomorrow you’ll be 4.
The days are long, just they said, but the years leave me wanting more;
Every day you’re changing, and it rocks me to my core.
You love to dance you love to read and you’re always up to explore;
Your smile, your laugh, your spirit – are just a few things I adore.
I’ll blink my eyes and your bags will be packed sitting by the door;
I know I’ll stand in disbelief thinking, wasn’t she just 4?
I don’t know what lies ahead for you or what God has in store;
But whatever it is - I’ll be right here - like all the years before.
So rest your head and close your eyes and let those big dreams soar;
This year will be so magical – baby girl, you’re turning 4!
