The instant our eyes met

Changed me forever

Fresh tears shed

The moment we gazed

At each other

 

A tiny hand gripping

My pinkie with strength

A life new for which

I prayed for

Great length

 

Your first year was fun

As you passed far and wide

Between family and friends

As we shared you

With pride

 

You spoke as you crawled

Lullabies we did sing

Rocking daddy’s deep voice

On my shoulder

You’d cling

 

The excitement of knowing

Many years lay ahead

Reassured this small voice

In our home would

Be heard

 

But alas in a matter

Of seemingly weeks

A grown woman appeared

Tall, poised, with curves

And high cheeks

 

No more Barbie or Ken

Or hairdressers pretend

No playing school teaching

Or slumber parties

Jumping on beds

 

Educated and beautiful

Articulate with grace

Wonderful Daughter

This proud loving Dad

Will always embrace.
