Written for my son on the birth of his first child.

You wonder what little girl thoughts
Are projecting from these eyes so blue,
Perhaps with just a little imagination
These child-like thoughts may ring true .

“Daddy, I know that you love me
And want to keep me from harm,
Will you always think I’m special
Even when I cause you great alarm?

Will you keep a constant watch over me
When at times I’m afraid of the night,
Chase away the fears of those shadows
Hiding in corners, just out of sight?

Will you always be there for me, Daddy
When the first steps are taken…into life,
Through baby teeth, my crushes, faded dreams,
Will you be there to love away my strife?

I trust you Daddy, because I know
As my father, you’re supposed to be wise.”
As the years go by, she’ll always recall
Unconditional love in her daddy’s eyes.

Now perhaps the words are different
But the questions are still the same,
Her eyes still silently communicate,
If unheeded, who’s really to blame?
