I remember when daddy used to tuck me in at night
Dozens if butterfly kisses before he said goodnight
But he always remembered to leave on a light
He’d hold my by my ankles and swing me around
His voice the most reassuring sound

He would read books aloud
My sister and I a quiet crowd
He could pick me up by my ears and I would giggle
Hanging in the air I’d laugh and wiggle
He’d braid my hair every night
It hung down my back perfectly tight

He gave me everything and so much more
Things I wouldn’t dream of asking for
He built a playhouse of enormous size
My very own palace in my eyes

The tallest man in the world in my head
Always so wise in the things he said
I learned from him everyday
He taught me how to do everything the right way
From the perfect dive to how to change a tire
How to ski and not to be a liar

My sister and I waiting all day for the creak of the door
Running to him, he’d be just as happy to see us im sure
He’d tell stories of all different kinds
Before we went to bed they’d be the last thing on our minds
He was smart as Einstein and strong as superman
He’s the one who makes me believe I can

I was daddy’s little girl as a child
Young without a care and wild
He was my protector and my hero
When he was around my fears would zero
And to this day he is still a hero to me
He teaches me so much and still I am learning to see
My dad is everything I wish I could be
