Zuha, my daughter

My love, my life, my heaven on earth 
Oh, the joyous feeling at your birth 
A smile that reached into my heart 
Just calling me to play my part 

Gently swaying in my arms 
Your dainty form, so smooth and calm 
Shining eyes, like diamante 
Soft as snow on a wintery day 

The little curls brushing your face 
Beauty matched with childish grace 
And then you made those crooning sounds 
Like a summer breeze just dancing around 

Holding you tight, so close to me 
I knew that you would always be 
My refuge, my escape to a place so fine 
A return to innocence and godliness divine 

When I first laid my eyes on you 
T'was as if a million dreams came true 
Like the rarest of gems, a gorgeous pearl 
Six years on, you're still daddy's girl 

Knowing then as I do now 
That you and I are tied somehow 
Your pain would pierce me to my soul 
Your joy would make me dance and roll 

I know not what the future holds 
But this I know if truth be told 
In years you'll need me less and less 
But you I'll crave till I'm laid to rest

    Generally a daughter is always an apple of father's eyes as a son to his mother Kashif.
