Daddy's Girl #monday musings

I am a girl,
My daddy's girl.
He showed me the ways of life  and was always there by my side.
Papa, I love you for what you have made me,
for the vision you gave me.
The critic in you brought the best out of me.
I don't know how, but you always know,
the way I feel.

Your had your own little ways to make me feel secure;
My tough papa has a softer side for sure.
No kissing and cuddling from you;
But I know you love us too.
The way you held us through life's night and day;
keeping the problems at bay.

Papa I feel proud to be your little girl.
 My daddy's girl.

Though I had written this poem around two years back it still holds true to its emotion even today.

      Its just that we as children may be ignorant at times...

    1. Thank you :)
      My father laughs when he reads the poem, maybe he is more comfortable with the unspoken.
