It’s a girl,
Were the doctor’s words, her lips unfurled.
When you were born,
It was a new dawn.
Your shrill cry,
Was happiness to my eye.
Fit perfectly within my elbow,
Dark brown eyes with vermilion cheeks glow.
It was a dream come true,
Dreamt since I was twenty-two.
Soft fingers wanting to be caressed,
With their touch making me de-stressed.
Your presence was a bliss,
Feet meant to be kissed.
My heart filled with pride,
I’m sure you’ll make my life a joyride.
From bike rides to mountain climb,
You will learn it and be the only dime.
Embracing failures on one hand
And successes on the other.
As a father this would be my only goal,
To make you an independent soul.
