I just didn’t know until she came around, what a marvelous mountain of joy can be found
when her tiny feet playfully patter the ground.
It’s a joy you can’t replace.
When I come home she’ll kerplop in my lap, hug and kiss me and fall off to a nap.
The peace of her dreams are like reading a map,
That’s written all over her face.
You should see this child’s radiant smile, when her daddy walks down the hallway or aisle.
She makes the whole world become worthwhile
With her impish charm and grace.
Like a monkey she climbs high off the ground. She likes to be twirled and twirled around.
Tickle her tummy for a happy giggling sound.
She brings laughter to our place!
I clearly recall her milk dabbed chin, and that dimpled, dazzling, dainty grin,
That so lit up my heart and my soul within.
She’s a teddy bear to embrace
Well I really shouldn’t shamefully brag, but my opinion of other kids woefully sag.
She’s the champion who has captured the flag.
She really wins the race.
That’s MY girl, I proudly think, whether her face is scrubbed or covered with ink.
Even when she’s bad, she’ll give me a wink
And anger won’t make first base.
Every day when I think of my little dove, I just thank all the heavenly stars above
That she’s my beautiful Daughter of Love
An orchid in a vase.
