Just Like You!

I glance down and smile
My little girl looks at me
In my best dress and shoes
Red lipstick on her grinning face
Look mommy, I'm just like you!

I look up and smile
My daughter twirls around
Her prom dress swirling around her feet
So beautiful, so grown-up
Look momma, I'm just like you!

I look in the mirror and smile
My daughter smiles back at me
So radiant in her wedding dress
So glowing, so in love
Look mom, I'm just like you!

I look down and smile
Gently touch my daughter's sweaty brow
Gently touch the soft newborn's cheek
Sweet, innocent new girl
Look mom, I'm just like you!

I look up and smile
My family looks down at me
Daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter
Gently they whisper good-bye
Look mom, we're just like you.
