HOW DID THE YEARS PASS SO QUICKLY

How did the years pass so quickly?
It seems it was just yesterday,
that you were my little girl
who was running outside to play.

I know there were years in between,
years that went flying right by.
I wish I could pinpoint that day
when you packed up and said good-bye.

I seem to recall a young woman
who came and brought me her child.
And looking into that baby’s eyes
I remembered your beautiful smile.

How did the years pass so quickly?
It seems it was just yesterday
I watched as my little grand daughter
went running outside to play.

I know there were years in between,
that seem to have flown right by.
I hated that day in the summer,
you were packed and saying good-bye.

And now my grandchild is a mother,
where did all those years go?
I look at this beautiful baby girl,
who inherited her grandmother's nose.

How did the years pass so quickly,
it seems it was just yesterday
that you were my little girl
who was running outside to play.
