You are a princess in my heart,
and I care for you so much.
I love the fondness in your eyes and your tender little touch.

I looked at you when you born,
and knew then straight away,
that I would be forever here
to watch you grow and play.

You bring to me heart of joy,
and memories so great,
and a powerful sense of fatherhood that no one can debate.

I watch you sleep and dream of things that I can only wonder.
That innocent look upon your face just makes my heart grow fonder.

I see you run and jump and shout and calling out my name.
No love that I have ever known could ever feel the same.
No suffering or tragedy nor deeply seated pain could ever over shadow the bond that we retain.

And so my little princess before you go to sleep,
Remember I am your daddy and I am yours to keep.

Even though I'm not a mother, I have younger sisters so I know what it is like to watch someone grow up and I think you portrayed those feeling perfectly. Keep it up :)
