My darling curious quick witten daughter,
my love for you will never falter.
Life’s greatest joy is to be your father.
You are a wonder to my old eyes,
your lust for life always makes me smile.
Ever since you came to us under a full moonrise.
I will always be your steadfast rock.
Always protect you like a keen eyed hawk.
Always there if you need a hug or to talk.
I am forever proud and grateful,
I have a child so caring and merciful.
Thankful the universe entrusted me with a soul so beautiful.
My greatest wish for you is a life filled with love,
with friends and laughter and the freedom of,
letting dreams grow wings to fly the heavens like a dove.
A letter or perhaps a diary entry, I spent my lonely childhood dreaming of. Something to hold close to my heart, something that would tell me I was once loved and cherished.
I’m glad I finally found a way to write what that little girl so dearly needs!
