Here’s what I’ll do for you
For my daughter
The things I will do I have put into rhyme,
I hope that it’s clear from these few random lines?
It might not seem much but it’s part of a plan,
To show you my love in the best way I can.
I’ll hug and I’ll hold you, I’ll worry, I’ll cry,
I’ll be totally honest yet know when you lie.
I will paint you a picture, I’ll sing you a song,
I will tell you a story or say when you’re wrong.
I will shout, I will play, I will spend all my money,
I will laugh at your jokes when they’re not even funny.
I will guide you, advise you and tell you you can,
I will fight in your corner, ‘cause that’s who I am.
I will smile at your face when you’re not even there,
I’ll remember your voice and the smell of your hair.
I will die to protect you, will love and respect you,
‘cause this was my pledge from the day I first met you.
So now that you know all the things I will do,
I’ll end with this promise especially for you.
I’ll always be there through the good and the bad,
For you are my life,
From your Dad XXX
