Dads and their Little Girls – by Joe Steier
Dads watch their lives go speeding by, always asking GOD why?
Dads must survive the daily grinding;
Hoping that you and your baby girl hearts are slowly binding
Dads try to relive their lives through their boys;
But they spoil their little girls with all the right toys
Dads always hope that your little girl will keep them as “the apple of their eye”;
Knowing you’re building them so one day they can fly
Dads cherish their little girls like nothing else ever;
And they know it is truly their most noble endeavor
Dads will always guard their little girl like precious gold;
While quietly teaching them to be beautiful and bold
Dads carry many burdens that are often unknown;
But only a little girl makes them feel Iike a king where they sit on their temporary throne
Dads never really like the concept of another boy someday taking over;
But they support secretly hoping one day they might get another four leaf clover (granddaughter)
Dads know little girls are truly spiritual gems that change your life from day one;
Dreading the day the little girl phase is actually done!
Dads sit around talking incessantly about their girls 24/7;
Hoping that their good work was enough to get them into heaven!
Happy Sweet 16, Jacqueline Christine Rose Steier
