Daddy's Little Girl Is All Grown Up

Updated on January 6, 2013

Twenty five years ago this February 2011

I stood in the delivery room and I thought I was in heaven.

Daddy's little girl was born

I was so excited and happy to see my beautiful little girl

she lie so still and sweet

as i tried tickling her little feet

I held her so soft and gentle

worrying not to hurt this precious gem God has given me

As years pass I watched her grow, learn and develop

She had grown into a woman it seems overnight

it's the way of life that I could not fight

I miss the joy of holding my baby girl

Daddy's little girl is all grown up

The memories will last a life time

It gives me great joy and pride to say that once little

baby girl, now woman is mine.


I love you Stefani

Daddy

      @ Cagsil (Ray) Thanks again for visiting and commenting. I am truly blessed with my family and to think I almost lost them all because of a (avoidable0 addiction to alcohol. I treasure and love them all dearly and would die without them. They are my life Ray and not my addiction anymore, Thank God!!

      Hey Mark, I'm not a parent, so I don't know what it's like to watch my own children grow up. However, even with that said, I've watched my nieces grow up to be extremely beautiful ladies. One is 16 presently and turning out to be quite a looker, but is still maturing. The other is 21 years old and in college, and has a good head on her shoulders. Yes, the years passed by quickly and I'm glad to see what they are turning into now. And, no it doesn't make me want any of my own. LOL! :) Nice tribute to your daughter. :)

      @ shygirl2 You are so right. It is very hard to let go especially when those memories were so wonderful. The father never wants his little girl to get older, but that the facts of life. I'll always have fond memories of all those things we did , daddy's little girl and me .

      Thank you so much for your kind comment :)

      It's hard to let go of the memories of when they are young, isn't it? Then you get to watch them grow into adults, and it is hard to fathom they are not little ones anymore. Great dedication poem from a good dad. :D Loved the poem tribute to your daughter. :D
