Happy Birthday Baby Girl Love Daddy

Birthday poem from a father to his daughter

Baby Girl

© Leah Miller
Just when he thought he had it all
His wife, His sons, His perfect world

Then he met his baby girl

Her mother's eyes, and daddy's smile
A light within the sun would rival

Today she's four, it's gone too fast
How can I stop the clocks, and make this last

How can such a small voice capture my soul
and every small scratch take such a toll

She's raised the stakes, her brothers and I are on high alert
praying she'll never learn how to flirt

And if she does it will change my whole world
Trying to keep her MY baby girl

Happy Birthday Baby Girl Love Daddy
