On this day, 10 years ago...
I'm in love with you
The world became a more beautiful place.
Let me hear you whisper
I learned the words to 'Daddy's little girl' weeks before you arrived
That you love me too
But the first time I held you, this song came out instead
Keep the love light shining
You don't toddle up and give me wet kisses on request anymore
In your eyes so blue
Or call me Dadd-a
Let me call you sweetheart
But when you don't know you're doing it; when you're not paying attention
You still reach for me
Still lean on me
And it makes me soar... and pray
That you'll always want me along for the ride.
Happy Birthday, sweetheart.
And now she's 17...
Two songs have come to mind since...
Zac Brown's "I'll be Your Man" and Ben Folds' "Gracie." To wit...
Go and have a ball
Take every chance that you make
You know I'll be one call away
I'll always be
I'll always be your man (ZB)
Nobody else is ever gonna see but you and me
My little girl (BF)
