My Precious Daughter (Revised)

Sitting here all alone
thinking, just how much you've grown
You're growing up, you're almost two
My joy the first time holding you
There's an empty feeling in my heart
because we are so far apart
It was so hard to say goodbye
I remember curls, and big brown eyes.

Lately I've been really sad
please don't forget that I'm your dad
I'll never forget my favorite girl
the greatest thing in this big world
If I had one wish, it would surely be,
for you to come and live with me
I know it's what every dad would say
But I know your mom would say 'no way'

If your mom and I could share
I could show you Cassie how much I care
Leaving you wasn't what I'd planned
maybe someday, you'll understand
I never missed anyone so much, not ever!
You will be a part of me forever
I'll come back, I just don't know when
I have to keep missing you, till then

I'm starting to cry like running water
I love and miss my precious daughter
