I danced with a reason
For living tonite
I was tired
Worked all day
Was trying hard to look forward to it
I came home, opened the door
And God...she was stunning
Just like her mother
And when I told her how
Beautiful she looked
Her shy smile, and the pure
Proud joy, at my simple words
Made my day so small
And me her world and I
Was filled with worth and love

And we danced all night
Clumsy and not caring
In her beautiful gown
With her laughing friends
All angels
And we laughed and did the
Chicken dance, the YMCA
And line danced like fools
And all of the dads
Forgot to look sheepish
And I glimpsed for an instant
The woman she was becoming
So soon
And I knew, I was the first man
She loved
I will never forget
That night I danced
With an angel
.
.

Had to resubmit, this one was lost with server problems the other day.Thank you my friends, my other 2 submissions made it into the book.I am very excited for what will be my first time in print and I am honored.This one I gift to Jessica, whom I danced with that nite.

Running after dreams ~
I made it through another lonely night
Thinking of you
I know I should be strong
I just canít say ~goodbye~(LR)

A fun-loving, healthy father/child relationship is so precious and not
to be taken for granted. Which you've
expressed in spades!
Lovely, simply lovely, Jason.

I think this should DEFINATELY be included in the book!! I hope you won't mind if I print it out and share it with my husband and daughter. I think they may enjoy it as much as your Jessica does! And maybe, just possibly, it will help get my husband out to the Father/Daughter dance our young Rebecca wants him to attend. Thanks for this write Jason! Gets my vote!

And me her world and I
Was filled with worth and love

OMG - poems of children with their fathers
touch me so deeply
as i dreamed all my life
of that honor & pleasure
to find myself ever wanting

outstanding write sir &
thank-you for sharing your joy
of fatherhood -
you sound like an excellent Dad
