To my Daughter, on her 10th Birthday

Tell me what you see
Let me call you sweetheart

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.
