So Many Girls are Daddy´s Girl. !!

Updated on November 13, 2016

Daddy´s girl, I was for sure.

I´d run when hearing key in door,

He´d scoop me up with just one arm,

I felt I could come to no harm.

We´d walk towards my mummy.

Her turn now to receive his kiss,

He´d place me on the floor,

I´d still be staring up, in bliss.

At those times I felt only love,

like fairy dust falling from above,

filling the room of our happy home.

Happy , to me ´cos daddy was home.


I thought ONLY I was daddy´s girl,

He loved my auburn hair in ringlets,

He´d call me funny names,

and with mummy we´d play games.

He teased me that I had a nose

resembling a pickled onion.

I soon could see he´d made a ryhme.

and really quite a funny one.....


´´ Veronica is a funny one,

Got a nose like a pickled onion,

Got a face like a squashed tomato,

And feet like flat fish.¨´´´


Then the tickling would begin,

For in the verse there was no sin,

No insult meant, How could there be?

When ´Daddy´s girl I was, you see.


me with my dad mum and my younger brother.
me with my dad mum and my younger brother.

    Ha ! I can´t believe it either. I also got the ´´curl in the middle of her forehead´ rhyme.........

    So glad it brought happy memories for you.

    I absolutely love your poem! I was a Daddy's girl also and I can't believe it, but my Dad did the same things with me that your Dad did with you! Oh, the memories! My hair hung in ringlets and my Dad would always recite the poem, "There was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead..." Thanks so much for a trip down memory lane and gor all the precious memories!

    You left out the bunion! Too young, I suppose. Seriously, I loved it. Very sweet with just a little savoury added in.

    Well I can see where you get your writing aptitude. It runs in the family. With Father's Day coming up, I am sure good vibrations for Fathers are spreading throughout the world and the galaxies.

    Beautiful and interesting, I expected only a happy song- but it had a grain of sad to it. Like missing something. The teasing rhyme of the last paragraph did that. A wonderful style. I like it. Daddy's girl many of us are. Voted up and away.
