A Father

Tears came to his eyes

as he tenderly gazed,

at the child in his arms,

safe and secure where she lay.


This child he’d created,

along with his wife –

A gift from above,

this precious new life.


He smiled at his child,

then he gave a slight start,

when she smiled back at him,

and captured his heart.


He vowed he would give her,

all that he could,

of his love and his time,

and all that was good.


So right then and there,

he declared before God,

to be the best father,

his daughter ever could have.


And so they began,

her journey through life,

both father and daughter,

with God by their side.
