I Am Yours To Keep

You are a princess in my heart,
and I care for you so much.
I love the fondness in you eyes and your tender little touch.

I looked at you when you were born,
and knew then straight away,
that I would be forever here
to watch you grow and play.

You bring to me a heart of joy,
and memories so great,
and a powerful sense of fatherhood that no one can debate.

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 my little princess before you go to sleep,
Remember I am your daddy and I am yours to keep.

Father's Day is only a few days away and being away from my little girl has been hard. The Military has been my life for 14 years, and though I've been away from my daughter at times, this time seems to have hit me the hardest. Reading this poem brought me to tears. I ask the good Lord to protect my daughter every night and I count down the days 'till I can hold her in my arms again. Aubrey, you are my world baby and daddy love you.

Thank you. I wanted to find something like this. I only see my daughter, 5, 2 hrs a week. I love her so much. I left her mother, the family home, for 2 months and now my kid is in foster care. I will do anything to get her back with me. Her mother is a total idiot (mild) to let this happen. She cried today when I saw her she wanted to stay.

It is now Fathers Day, I think of the Greatest Blessing in my life. My princess and how I feel about her. This poem is really hard to even read to myself, let alone her at age 5, it does say exactly how a Father should feel and A Fathers Love for his daughter can't EVER be measured. I know a fathers love is more beautiful and stronger than any love I have EVER felt.

Well I divorced also and as I've read this poem it really touched me and that made me to write my pain and thoughts!! I love my daughter more than anyone in the whole world!! and this poem can really touch my soul and how I feel about my child!!
I pray to God to have my daughter well and I hope one day her mum to be at my place to see how I feel when I can't see my daughter.
They say that the love of a mother can't be compared with nothing!!! I believe the father's love is much stronger and much more than anything else in this world!!!

everyday I go to work I think of my daughter. she makes my life complete. sometimes I feel like crying because every time I leave she cries. but everytime I'm off work I spend as much I can with her cause she won't be little for long. Everynight I watch her sleep thinking about I'm a wonderful dad. and nobody can take that away from me.

The words in this poem, best describes the feeling I have now, as my little princess celebrates her 4th birthday. Though I am far away and I may not be able to give her my kisses and my hugs. But I hope, with this poem, I can break the boundaries of miles that separates us, give her my love and tell her HAPPY BIRTHDAY my sweet little princess Jaira.

This poem brings a lump in my throat. My daughter is my life. At work or whenever things go rough and I am down. I pick my mobile and her picture has that soothing feeling that always says that she's worth it and that nothings ever going to change my love for her. An angel in my heart, my life and my house.

I have three children, well, one is my daughter by birth, 22 yrs. young. This poem couldn't be closer to the truth! The only thing I would change about the poem is, that it's very fitting for either, mother or father! As I've heard, several times over the years that it doesn't matter about gender! Good people, raise good kids! I know, it's not easy but you have to install, drill them & try to instill quality greater values!

This is the first Christmas away from home and my daughter after a painful divorce, unfortunately I don't have the resources to buy her as big of a Christmas present as I would like. I have bought her a small present and with all respect to the author of this poem, I would like to borrow his words and read this beautiful poem to my little 6 year old angel thru the phone to express the love I feel for her. Because of the situation I am in right now, and because of how this poem has helped me this Christmas, it will forever be etched in my heart.
