Little one, born so small
One pound 7oz, that was all
That day is when your battle begun
Your life long fight would never be done

Your fight to win would never end
Little one so strong, your will would not bend
You fought for yourself in such a way
Little one you were so determined to stay

Now at 24 lbs and 3 years old
Your walking is done on your toes,
Cerebral palsy you now have to fight
Your muscles are short, and very tight.

The doctors say surgery on your legs will be done
So in the hospital you go, for another fight to be won
Coming home, now your fight is to walk on your feet
Little one God is with you so your goal you can meet

How strong you have been, for a little ones fight
Still waking up with those bad dreams at night
You my little one, are the twinkle in my eye
I love you so deeply, when you hurt, I cry

Life has tried to knock you down
But you keep fighting, never wearing a frown
God has blessed you with a smile, strength and love
Little one your so precious an angel from above

So never give up, continue to fight
Little one Iíll be there to hold you at night
Youíre my angle my granddaughter my precious little one
I will be with you my darling, until your fight has been won!!!
