Daddy's Girl

4 years old
in a pretty pink dress
she twirls and sings
daddy says
"Daddy's little girl is so pretty"

6 years old
she falls off her bike
she cries and bleeds
she looks at daddy with tears in her eyes
daddy says
"Daddy's little girl is so pretty"

10 years old
daddy tucks her in and
lays beside her
just like every night
daddy says
"daddy's little girl is so pretty"

12 years old
she looks in the mirror
ashamed, he doesnt come see her anymore
she wonders
"Am i still daddy's little girl?"

This is actually a really good poem, and it's so true nowadays. Great work ;)
