I Am yours to keep …
looked at you when you were born,
and knew then straight away,
that I would be forever here
to watch you grow and play.
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 before you go to sleep,
Remember I am your daddy
and I am yours to keep.
You are a princess in my heart and always will be
