                 A Father's Love

             Oh what a gift that day
              Such a tiny baby girl
           With eyes that seemed to say
             I will love you always

           Watching you grow was such joy
            The sweetness never faltering
            An angel always,even when coy
         Love was so easy to bestow upon you

          Always giving with a heart so warm
          Never down the bright eyes remained
        Your dad is proud to have seen your charm
      Precious angel,my love for you will never wane

Your missive reads of sweetness and devotion...what a gift your daughter has in you, as well, to be able to recognize and express your sentiment in this tender way.

Well to be honest you have made me cry with this one...Maybe you could give my father some pointers =o)  Great poem!

I can very well relate, I have two daughters and one son.  But if this truly is your experience then as wondrous as this is it will pale when one day that daughter looks up at you with those same beaming eyes glistening with tears as she holds up a bundle to you and says: "Dad, look at my daughter, isn't she beautiful" At that moment you will have all  her joy and yours in your heart.

Hello Richard I'm a new guy in this town.
  This hit home for my heart, having a 4 month old daughter it's more than mind imagery.
         Sincerely,
               Paul
