Twelve years ago today my wife and I welcomed our first child, a daughter, into this world. Since then we also have a son and while there is most assuredly a father-son dynamic my son and I have going on, there is nothing quite like the relationship between a father and his daughter.
Any other fathers out there who have daughters will know precisely what I mean. There is something incredibly emotional that goes on between a father an daughter.
To say the past twelve years have flown by at supersonic, warp speed would be an understatement to say the least. I have seen my little girl change literally in the blink of an eye and in some ways I am thrilled to see her grow, but I am also deeply saddened because sometimes I miss My Baby Girl…
I wrote this poem about 6 months after she was born and the words are just as true today as they were the day I put “pen to paper.”
And no matter how old she gets, she will ALWAYS be My Baby Girl…
