My little girl.

You're big enough to inspire her imagination.
Good enough to keep her coming back for more.
Your plans would satisfy any thirst for adventure.
Your passion would capture her heart.
My little girl.
But, that spirit, Lord!
That will!
Only you can bend it.
Use my hands, of course.
Make them firm and sure.
Gentle, too.
But you must do
What only you can do.
Pour out your spirit on us.
Cover her with your grace till then.
My little girl.
May she be your little girl.
And soon!
