Everyday I am grateful,
To have you as my father.
Though you are busy, time is made for me,
And I know I am not a bother.
Growing up, preserving my happiness,
And wiping my tears.
Was a job you fulfilled,
As you took away my fears.
Playing games and reading me books,
Was always important to you.
And now that I’ve matured,
I realize it was to me too.
With my ignorance vanished,
I now must confess
That “Daddy’s Little Girl”
Is a title I am proud to possess.
