Beautiful Girl

Beautiful girl,
beautiful Jordyn.
Please realize
you are more than this world.
A gift from heaven.
A princess in disguise.
Beautiful girl,
beautiful Jordyn

You are loved. Oh, so loved.
Blessings like rain,
pour down from above.
Can you feel it? Can you hear it?
That warm loving feeling
comes from the spirit.

Remember your worth.
There is a job only you can do
While on this earth
Angels guide you, walk beside you.
Take care precious daughter.
I will protect you
if you wear your armor

Beautiful girl,
beautiful Jordyn.
Love and laughter
Are needed in this world.
You have many gifts
but continue to seek after.
You are my
beautiful girl,
beautiful Jordyn
