I remember when I was small
I used to love to swing so high,
pumping harder with my legs,
trying to reach the sky!
Feeling the wind rush past my face,
holding onto the chains so tight,
I'd almost feel like I was a bird,
soaring in blissful flight!
I remember the feeling oh, so well,
the sheer joy of being so free,
and I felt exactly the same way
the day God brought you to me!
My heart just soared, full of joy,
I knew I'd found happiness,
and because it was a gift from God,
I also knew it would be the best!
Every day I swing so high,
touching the clouds as I go by,
wonder and love fill me to overflowing,
I can hardly believe you are mine!
I thank God above every morning and night,
for transforming my life, making it new,
and most of all I celebrate again
how very much that I LOVE YOU!!!

There is one thing I would change though: "I remember the feeling oh, so well"
doesn't really need the comma, because I've never heard anyone pause when saying it. I think it would read better as "I remember the feeling oh so well"
Just my opinion. Let me know what you think.
Your poem really reminded me of exactly how it felt as a youngster to be on those swings!
May God bless.
