Daddy bought some new shoes
Gave it to his daughter for her to use
Watched her twirled and danced
Found his little girl stunning in first glance
Daddy loved his little princess dearly
And she loved him back just as sincerely

But both were unaware of life’s clock
Found death behind the door with a knock
Her ballet slippers were left behind
Her old life was impossible to find
Daddy’s hair went gold to gray
And just like that, her world slipped away

For my dad.
