~From Daughter to Father~
While the wind continues to blow,
The grass continues to grow.
In fact, nothing ceases to age.
Instead, life continues to change.

Remember the ride from the hospital....
feeling nervous yet ecstatic
about the tiny life recently added to the family
Do you remember the first words?
how about the first steps?

Your baby girl continued to grow,
continued to age... and change...
along with other aspects in your life.
Soon she’ll be graduating,
Next there’s college.
Before you know it,
your baby girl will have a family of her own.
It’s funny...
So much has changed since 1995,
however, one important factor remains constant.
That baby girl...
will always love you.

Happy Father’s Day Daddy

I can feel the emotion flowing through this poem. It's beautiful and I can't think of anything you should change.
