Acrostic 26 sentences
"Always and Forever" by Shirley McLain

Always and forever my child.  Bonding before you arrived. Coming into the world with a scream.  Deepening the love between us.  Eye to eye I knew you could see and know me.  Funny faces you made to make me smile. Grasping my fingers with your hand,  tied our hearts together. Holding onto the world with all your might.
I cried and prayed out of fear for you when you became ill. Jostling you back and forth to comfort you. Keeping you safe and happy as can be. Laughing at the joy you bring. Making my world bright.  Noticing the changes you've made. Overtly growing so fast. Perfecting your skills with each passing day. Quickening my heart with increasing love. Resolving the little things that make you cry.  Sensing when changes aren’t right. Time increases the tenderness you show.  Understanding one day you will take flight. Visiting as life directs.
Wonderful memories will be mine. Xenial nature you have which is loved by all.  Your preciousness brings so much joy to our family. Zip and you're grown to make your world your own.
