My Wonderful Girl

She’s started looking more at her face in the mirror,
Not so much from vanity,
But in part from curiosity
Of who she can and wants to be.
A beauty?
Pretty?
This and more is she to me.
And I hope the world will one day see
The same things I see
Every day and for eternity:
A beauty
Inwardly and outwardly
O, how I love my wonderful girl Ellie.
