Grow Old

Grow Old



Grow old my little girls I'm as proud as I can be.

You are growing up so fast its beautiful to me.

Stand up tall and proud so everyone can see

Thank God you are here you mean everything to me.



You are like a ray of sunshine giving away your warm soft light

You always try so hard to please and do what's Right

You remind me how blessed I am each and every night.

Stand up for yourself and don't be afraid to fight



.I will always be here for you I am your biggest fan.

Watch out for you and protect you the very best I can.

Grow old my little girls and be as happy as you make me.

Tell me how an angel can walk beneath the trees.



Grow old my little girls and never have no fear.

No one can ever hurt you God is always near.

You are considerate and thoughtful to everyone you meet

Giving them hope and kindness to help them to their feet



A man's life is measured by what he has done.

Taking care of you is my greatest one.

Please never cry a tear for me. I will never be sad.

I know God loves me because I got to be your dad.
