I Love You, Daddy!

I miss daddy...

Just moments ago, I was toying with iTunes and played "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle.  It's a song about a father and his "little girl."  While listening to it, I could imagine my dad.  I cried. The song fits us perfectly.


There's two things I know for sure
She was sent here from heaven
And she's daddy's little girl
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life
Oh but most of all
For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
Walk beside the pony daddy
It's my first ride
I know the cake looks funny daddy
But i sure tried
Oh with all that I've done wrong
I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning
And butterfly kisses at night

Sweet 16 today
She's lookin like her mama
A little more every day
One part woman
The other part girl
To perfume and make up
From ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world
But I remember
Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
You know how much I love you daddy
But if you don't mind
I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time
Oh with all that I've done wrong
I must have done something right
To deserve her love every morning
And butterfly kisses at night

All the precious time
Like the wind the years go by
Precious Butterfly
Spread your wings and fly

She'll change her name today
She'll make a promise and I'll give her away
Standing in the bride room just staring at her
She asked me what I'm thinkin'
And I said I'm not sure
I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl
And she leaned over
And gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
Walk me down the aisle daddy
It's just about time
Does my wedding gown look pretty daddy?
Daddy don't cry
Oh with all that I've done wrong
I must have done something right
To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses
I couldn't ask God for more than this is what love is
I know I've got to let her go but I'll always remember
Every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses 

Even now that I'm 26, I am still my daddy's little girl.  I may be changing my last name sometime soon, but he's definitely not losing me.  All my life I have always been a happy girl, and I owe that to my father.  If not for him, I wouldn't have a happy mommy, and without a happy mommy, there would be no happy children.  :)

I love you daddy!  I can't wait for you to come home. :)


Daddy's girl,
