Daddy's Girl

Like a tree Firmly planted in the ground He stands tall and sturdy His dark eyes Full of forgiveness and understanding His strong hands Callous from years of driving nails He is a simple man Earning every penny he spends To some he is quite intimidating But to you he is a soft landing Ever since he held you For the very first time You had his heart He watched you grow Always there to lend a hand Sometimes a Firm hand to teach a lesson But more often It was soft and encouraging He taught you right from wrong And how to grow To be independent To be Strong He fixed you bumps Kissed your booboos Now he still helps To soothed your heart When needed You use to think You knew it all And now you Heed his every word Although you have not Always seen eye to eye Nothing could ever Cause your love to cease No matter how old You grow to be To him you will always be His baby girl And to this day All it takes Is his hug to help The hurting go away No one has ever felt As much love As between a daddy And his little girl -written 6/8/10
