Daddy's Girl

She wanders around without a clue
A little girl that envies you

You watch her grow up everyday
She makes you smile in every way

A gift from somewhere up above
She’s filled with everlasting love

Her eyes shine when she looks at you
So bright and perfect, who ever knew?

With jammies on she hops in bed
You start to leave, but then instead

You hold her close and rub her back
A story before she hits the sac

You do the voices perfectly
She follows along with 1-2-3

Before lights out, a hug and kiss
A moment that you wouldn’t miss

And while she rests so quietly
Your heart is melting silently

Thoughts of how she’s growing up
No more bib or sippy cup

The way she’s gotten so darn clever
You wish these things would last forever

The giggles and the playful roars
The crawling around all over floors

The tickles and the teasing grins
The it-don’t-matter-if-you-wins

The piggybacks and horsey rides
The swing sets and the twirly slides

The holding hands, the happy smiles
The stay-up-just-a-little-whiles

The snuggles and the rosy cheeks
The zerberts and the goofy squeaks

She learns so much come every day
And loves so much in every way

That nothing could destroy her world
As long as she is daddy’s girl
