Daddy's Little Girl - Poem by Elora Cooper

Daddy’s little princess,
Was such a beautiful girl,
She was everything he wanted,
Yes daddy’s precious pearl.

He gave her kisses every night,
To show his love to her,
He showed her off to the family,
And so impressed they were.

But she grew up so fast,
As all little girls do,
Her daddy tried to keep up,
And bought her makeup too.

Until one night he tried,
To show her the love he had,
But she didn’t want to know,
He thought she’d turned so bad.

Because she didn’t need daddy,
Now she had all grown up,
She had someone else to kiss her now,
She was another guy’s buttercup.

Daddy had lost his little girl,
And became so very bitter,
He hated all that came along,
And any lad that tried to kiss her.

Daddy didn’t want his princess,
To grow up and leave him behind,
So he became so strict on her,
And she began to mind.

She didn’t like her daddy now,
He tried to hold her down,
She wanted to go out and have a laugh,
Have a dance and be a clown.

It became the time when daddy gave up,
He forgot about his little girl,
He left her to her own devices,
And leave her, her own future to unfurl.

Now this little girl was very naughty,
She did some things that were bad,
She got herself into lots of trouble,
And made some people so very mad.

Now she had no-one to hold her at night,
To show her the love she needed,
She was all alone in the world,
It seems daddy’s plan succeeded.

Who did she turn to for help?
Who did she need after all?
Yes she wanted daddy again,
Now that she had taken a fall.

Now what did daddy do,
With this precious pearl?
Of course he hugged and kissed her,
After all, she was daddy’s little girl!
