Softly you've broken your way into our hearts
With your cute unfurled smile and great tennis smarts
And each time that I watch you in radiant bliss
I understand further why you're the only Swiss Miss.

Your puppy dog antics and broken English tones
And admission to happiness where it steadily roams
And when sad, you see your mother and she silently laughs
Her little girl is grown now--she's a woman and a half--

So enjoy your time in tennis as you seek higher things
Maybe immerse yourself in babies and wedding rings(!)
But whatever you do, I'll remember you at Sweet 16,
When you once broke softly into our hearts and splashed on to the scene.
