The Father Daughter Dance
Just a moment ago he held her in his arms, cradling her tiny body,
gently spinning and humming, and thinking of this day.
Since then he has watched her first step, corrected her homework,
cheered at her soccer games, and bandaged scraped knees...
Today he dances with his daughter again, he spins her round and round,
the audience and the music fading... all he feels is love...
this dance is a reminder of all the wonderful things he hoped for her.
He pulls her close, his daughter, his joy, his child, and he kisses her.
