My Daughter

It doesn't seem that long ago when I became a dad
And everything profoundly changed from the life that I once had
This tiny bundle changed my life in ways I'd never known
And I can never seem to grasp how fast the time has flown

A shining pair of bright blue eyes gazed out upon the world
And a tiny mouth with chubby cheeks into a smile curled
The smallest hand I'd ever seen held on my finger tight
And I gently rocked my baby 'til she fell asleep that night

[Hata Bildir]
