Dedicated to my niece, who is a little beacon of joy.
The most beautiful soul I have ever met, Is my sisters first born child.
Her smile is one you cant forget, So innocent,yet wild.
Her eyes so bright , they fill your heart,With gladness overflowing.
For Jessica is a special girl, That your better off for knowing.
If your filled with anger, And feel your ready to burst.
The best thing you can do. Is talk to Jessica first
She’ll sit on your lap, She might sing a song.
She’ll tell you a story, But before very long,
You’ll smile,and you’ll laugh, and your heart will be glad.
And you would not believe you could ever get mad.
Someday I’ll have a kid of my own, or maybe two or three.
If they have half the heart of Jessica, Then a happy dad I’ll be.
This was written a long time ago, I now have two sons and my niece is grown up with a baby girl of her own,but when she was 3 years old there was none cuter than Jessica.
