TO OLIVIA MARGARET SANFORD
 
YOU BROUGHT A HANDFUL OF HEAVEN
INTO THIS WORLD OF OURS
YOUR SWEETNESS AND YOUR BEAUTY
FILLED MANY HAPPY HOURS
 
YOUR DEAR MOM LOOKED FORWARD
TO SEEING YOUR TINY FACE
TO HOLDING YOU CLOSE AND DRESSING YOU
IN DRESSES WITH FRILLY LACE
 
SHE DREAMED OF SEEING YOU GROW
AND LATER START TO SCHOOL
AND MAYBE TAKE A DANCING CLASS
OR LESSONS AT A POOL
 
SHE SAW YOU WALKING DOWN THE AISLE
ON YOUR WONDERFUL WEDDING DAY
SMILING WITH A HEART OF HAPPINESS
AS YOU'D GO ON YOUR WAY
 
THE PLANS WERE ALL IN FRONT OF HER
JUST WAITING TO BE PUT INTO MOTION
HER HEART WAS FULL OF LOVE FOR YOU
AS BIG AS ALL OF THE OCEAN
 
HER HEART WAS FILLED WITH SELFLESS LOVE
FOR YOU HER LITTLE ONE
SHE CARRIED YOU AND SPOKE WITH YOU
YOU FILLED HER LIFE WITH SUN
 
AND THEN ONE DAY, YOU HEARD A VOICE
GENTLY CALLING YOUR NAME
COME BACK, MY SWEET OLIVIA
COME BACK TO HOME AGAIN
 
YOU FELT CONFUSED RIGHT THEN AND THERE
FOR YOU WERE MOST CONCERNED
ABOUT JUST HOW YOUR MOM WOULD FEEL
WHEN BAD NEWS WOULD BE LEARNED
 
YOU DIDNT WANT TO LEAVE HER
WHO'D GIVEN YOU SUCH LOVE
BUT YOU WERE BEING CALLED THAT DAY
FROM ANGELS UP ABOVE
 
WITHOUT HER REALLY KNOWING
YOU KISSED HER ON HER CHEEK
AND TOLD HER THAT YOU'D SEE HER
IN HEAVEN WHERE YOU'D MEET
 
YOU TOLD HER TOO THAT EVEN IF
SHE'D NEVER HAVE YOU HERE
THAT YOU'D BE LOOKING OUT FOR HER
FOR MANY MANY YEARS
 
YOU'LL ALWAYS BE HER DAUGHTER
AND SHE'LL ALWAYS BE YOUR MOM
FOR LOVE IS ALWAYS STRONGEST
AMONG THE LITTLE ONES
