I remember a time when I a lad,
the first time, that I could call me a dad,
The hour forever emblazoned in my mind
this precious human being, now remind
me that actual miracles occur.
I knew my own tears when first I held her,
lovely eyes that shine blue today as bright
as that first moment in the early night.
A passionate mind, she became strong willed
every interaction her heart fulfilled.
The future now ahead of you my dear
A father’s wish to know your gains are near.
The world will follow sweet child’s love for peace
I forever will ‘love you to piece(s)’
