I wish I could be there to watch you grow
I love you more than you will ever know
I’ve missed your first words, new teeth, first steps
At times, for your cuddles, my heart has wept
Never doubt that you are in my heart
You have been there from your very start
You and your sisters are loved so dear
I may not live close, but my love is always near
I wrap you, dear niece, in prayers at days end
I love you and your big girls ALWAYS, my sweet Hailyn.

-Amanda Almond, October, 2017. Written for my sweet niece, Hailyn, in honor of her 1st birthday
