The poem is below.


I'm dreaming of a little girl
running around my house
wiggling her butt as she eats 
the fanciest cake I ever made
I'd like to see my little girl
crying as she walks towards me
hugging me tight and tell
how she misses my kisses
Oh my little girl wearing a pink dress
trying to utter her first word
blabbing until she realizes 
she said "dada" for the first time
I'm pondering of a little girl
Has a resemblance of me
Wishing we'll grow up together
Till she becomes a poet like me
Write better poems and tell more stories
I'd like to see her doing her first time
From an innocent damsel to a professional one
Till she finally gets married to his prince
I'd like her to be at my side 
Be the best daddy as I ever could be
