A Father's Love

by Charissa   Jun 9, 2006

Look at you an image in white
Or should I say an angel that shines so bright
Just a few years ago it seems you where still a little girl
With hair that would just naturally curl
And now today you are not so small
Instead you stand so tall
Getting ready to walk down the aisle
And I stand here wishing this day wasn't for awhile
The music has began
And I have to be a man
I begin walking you down very slow
Knowing soon I will have to let you go
So you can go and make a family of your own
And watch your kids grow like I have watched you grown
We get to the alter and I lift your veil
And I stare into your eyes recognizing every little detail
I kiss your cheek
As the priest begins to speak
He asks who gives this girl away
And I do is what I say
I go to my seat
And feel as if my job as a dad is now complete
I hear you say,"I do"
And reality hits I know that this is true
You leave for your new life
Not as my little girl but as someone's wife
I will always love you
Because a father's love can never be overdue
